Clara Grossman was the second of Ann and Armin Hercz’s four children. Following the Nazi occupation of Hungary in 1944, Clara and her family were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. After a few weeks in Auschwitz, she was selected for a transfer to Stutthof where she performed forced labor until she was liberated on a death march.
Clara emerged from the camps a 15-year-old orphan. Arriving in the USA in 1948, she completed her schooling in Pennsylvania where she lived with relatives. She and her husband moved to Kansas City in 1989.Learn more about Clara Grossman
