Lea Indyk was one of seven children born to Szaja and Chaja Rozentik in Mszczonów, Poland. During the Holocaust she was forced into the Warsaw Ghetto before being deported to Majdanek, Auschwitz-Birkenau and Weisswasser, a subcamp in the Gross Rosen complex. After her liberation by Soviet troops, Lea made her way to Lodz where she met and married her husband. After living in Israel for two and a half years, the couple made their way to the United States with their young son, settling in Kansas City in 1950.
