Gabriella Major
Holocaust Survivor

Born in Debrecen, Hungary during WWII, she was deported with her mother and grandmother by cattle cars to a concentration camp near Vienna after many months of living in a ghetto. Eventually her family was liberated by the Russians. After reuniting with her father, the family lived in Hungry under Russian occupation. In 1956 the Hungarian Revolution broke out and the family immigrated to the U.S. in 1957.
