The Holocaust was a mass murder of six million Jews by the Nazis in Germany. The Nazis came to power in Germany and saw the Jewish as "inferior".
Born on November 5, 1928

On May 10, 1940 Brussels, Belgium was attacked by the German army (Nazis). After this, Lilly was deported in 1944 to Auschwitz. There she worked in a camp kitchen. During this time, a group of Hungarian and Jewish children and women arrived. She was then instructed to not feed them that night, for they would be killed the next day. Lilly snuck those people some bread and was almost killed, but got away quick enough. From there, she survived a forced march to the Bergen-Belsen camp, where she was later liberated on April , 1945. She then got to return to Brussels before emigrating to the United States in 1946.
Lilly Applebaum Malnik was born on November 5, 1928 in Belguim. She then lived in Antwerp, Belgium after her birth. A few years after she was born, her parents separated and she moved with her mother to find work in Brussels, Belgium. After she finished up school at the age of 17, she began to work full-time with her mother. That year when she started working with her mother, was the year she was brought into the Holocaust, at the age of 17.

Overview of the Holocaust:

In 1990, Lilly Applebaum Malnik (as seen above) was in an interview. From a lot of research, I still can not find out if she is still alive. This year she would('ve) be 86 years old.
My View Point:
In my point of view, there is no way you can make the Holocaust sound remotely okay. So many Jews died for no reason, especially during the death marches. Lilly survived her death march, which was almost rare for a child to do. Then, Lilly was almost killed for trying to feed some poor starving people, just because they all were supposed to die the next day. Reading other survivor and victim stories I realized that Lilly was very fortunate, not only because she wasn't killed, but that she made it all the way to The United States.
