Transcript of Lola Kaufman
Lola was born around the time Hitler was coming to power. When she was young her father was beaten to death by some Ukrainians. Soon after her mother was murdered by a German Policeman, leaving her with only her Grandmother.
Her Grandmother arranged for Lola to go into hiding with a Ukrainian woman. After about two months she was sent into a hole that was six and a half feet tall and wide covered in sticks and straw, with a woman named Rose, her daughter, and her brother Abraham. There was barely any food, and there was so much lice that Rose eventually cut all of Lola's hair off.
After nine months of living in these horrible conditions she was set free. She was soon reunited with her uncle and went to live with his family. Four years later they moved to America. She lived in New York. She grew up and married another Holocaust survivor and had a family.
The entire time Lola never let go of the dress her mother had
hand embroidered for
When Lola was older she soon wrote a book about her experiences during the Holocaust, titled The Hidden Girl.
