Magda Weis de Hartman Venezuela 2010
She was born in Olaszliska, Hungary, on December 12, 1917. Her mother died before the war when she was very young. In 1944, her father, siblings and other relatives were taken to a ghetto, and from there, almost among the last deportees, to Auschwitz. She was also in other camps: Plaszow, Breslow and finally Bergen-Belsen, where two sisters and a cousin died. At the end of the war she was able to emigrate to the United States, where she met her husband; after their marriage they settled in Venezuela.
Testimony: "On the day of the liberation they only said: 'You are free. I couldn't think anything, I could only think about my two sisters and the three sisters with the child they killed, and my father and everything. I could only think that I was not going back to Hungary."
