Olga Horak

Olga Horak was born in Bratislava in 1926 and was only 15 when German troops marched into Slovakia, forcing her family into the hands of the Nazis. From transit camp to death camp Olga and her mother struggled to survive the hatred and brutality. They were deported to camp Sered in 1944, to Auschwitz and then to Bergen-Belsen in 1945 where they remained until liberation. Olga’s mother died the day after liberation and she was left alone in the world. Her memoir is entitled: From Auschwitz to Australia.
