Poetry Reading with Magda Mozes Herzberger, Holocaust Survivor

Magda Mozes Herzberger was born on February 20, 1926, in Cluj, Romania. The Mozes family, along with thousands of other Jews, was forced into the Cluj Ghetto which was liquidated only a month later. Magda and her family were sent to Auschwitz, where most of them perished.

In 1957, after nine years in Israel, the Herzbergers immigrated to the U.S. They and their two children settled in Monroe, Wisconsin, where Magda's husband practiced medicine for 20 years. The Herzbergers moved to Dubuque, Iowa, in 1976 and to Arizona in 1994.
