Rebecca Hauser was 22 years old when the Nazis deported her and her family from their home in Ioannina, in northern Greece. They were rounded up on March 25, 1944, and taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.
Hauser’s parents perished there and after a year of hard labor she was taken to Bergen-Belsen in Germany where she was eventually liberated in 1945.
But her three brothers never returned and their fate is unknown.
Her uncles brought her to the United States in 1947.
