Alegra Tevet was born in Drama, Greece where she lived with her parents and six siblings. She experienced the Italian and German occupations of Greece, many anti-Jewish restrictions, and the Salonika ghetto. She and her family were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau in March 1943, spending nearly a week on the train. After her liberation at Bergen-Belsen, Alegra lived in Switzerland and Belgium before returning to Greece where she met and married her husband, Albert. In 1951 the Tevets emigrated to the United States.
