Martha always tells people we need to respect one another, because "we're all God's children."
Martha was born in 1925 in Szerencs, Hungary. She enjoyed a peaceful life with her family until Nazi Germany invaded their ally Hungary in 1944. Within a few months, her family was forced to live in a ghetto and then sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon their arrival, the camp authorities selected Martha and one of her sisters for forced labor. Eventually the two were separated from each other, and Martha was send to work in a munitions factory. Towards the end of the war, Martha and other inmates were sent on a death march but were soon liberated by the British. She returned to Hungary where she found some relatives, but all of her immediate family had perished. Martha settled in New York where she married and raised their three children.
