Nisenkier, Mina
Mina Nisenkier was the fourth of five children born to Samuel and Debra Markovich. When Mina was 12 years old, the Germans invaded Poland and then one week later marched into her hometown of Lodz. In 1940 the Markovich family was relocated to the Lodz Ghetto where Mina worked until her deportation to Auschwitz-Birkenau. After being transferred through a variety of labor camps, Mina found herself in Bergen-Belsen where she was liberated in 1945.
