Margalith Clarenberg was born in Germany in 1928 but later moved to Holland with her parents. Twice during the German occupation Margalith’s mother received an order to report for resettlement, but each time they found a way to avoid the deportation. After the second call up the family decided to find a hiding place. They survived in a series of hiding places until a unit of Polish soldiers fighting under the British liberated them. In 1959, Margalith came to the United States.
