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.
