Martha was born in 1926 in Szerencs, Hungary. She enjoyed a peaceful life with her family until Nazi Germany invaded Hungary in 1944. Within a few months, her family was forced to live in a ghetto. After a short time in the ghetto, they were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon their arrival, the camp authorities selected Martha and one of her sisters to work. Eventually the two were separated from each other, and Martha went 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. They raised their three children in New Jersey. She has been living in California since 2016.
