He was born in Salonika, Greece, on February 4, 1923. In 1943 the area of the city where her family lived was transformed into a ghetto, where they had to stay - with the exception of a sister who was married and moved to Syria - and then taken to Auschwitz. She was taken to Bergen-Belsen, and after liberation, back to her birthplace. In Salonika she was reunited with an old acquaintance whom she married. They went first to the United States and settled in Venezuela in 1956.
Testimony: "It was night when we arrived in Birkenau. In the morning we saw some French women and asked them where they took the mothers, the grandparents, everyone. Hard-hearted people told us: Are you seeing that smoke? There they are. They killed them all: my mother, my uncles, my uncles, my cousins, my nephews. Of my whole family, only I came back. Only I made it out alive.
