Dr. Jacob Eisenbach was born in Poland in 1923. After the German army invaded his country in 1939, Jacob’s neighborhood in Lodz, a predominantly-Jewish ghetto, became a fenced-in prison camp. The war tore the Eisenbach family apart, taking his father, brother and sister (his mother passed away prior to the invasion). Only Jacob and his brother Sam survived.

Originally from Miskolc, Hungary, Magda Brown was deported on one of the final transports to Auschwitz-Birkenau with her entire family when she was just 17 years old. Her parents died in gas chambers; her brother was the only other member of her family to survive and served in the Hungarian military’s Jewish labor force until being captured and imprisoned by the Russian army.
