Lansky Lola Borkowska OHC.JPG

Lola Borkowska Lansky was born in Lodz, Poland. She was twelve years old when the war started. After Poland fell, her parents sent Lola and her brother and sister (Louis and Helen) to a smaller community called Parzeczew for their safety. Later the family was sent to Ozorkow, Poland where they were pushed into a ghetto. When the ghetto in Ozorkow was liquidated, the Jews were either sent to the Chelmno death camp or moved on to the Lodz ghetto. Lola and her family were sent to Lodz where Lola went to work as a seamstress. In 1943 the deportations finally caught up with them and Lola and her family were put on a train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. After the selection only Lola, her mother, her sister and an aunt remained of the family. As the Russians neared the camp, the prisoners were marched out and Lola and her family were sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp in Germany, and then on to Muhlhausen slave labor camp. Their harrowing journey ended in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp where her mother died in her arms on the day before the camp was liberated by the British. Lola eventually immigrated to the United States, married Rubin Lansky in New York City, and settled in Atlanta, Georgia. Lola discusses her family, chilhood, the conditions in the various ghettos and in the camps in detail.
