Lily Margules

 

Brief History

Born in Vilna, Poland in 1924, Lily Mazuar Margules was one of two children born to pharmacist David Margules and dentist, Gutta Margules. However, in May of 1939, Lily's mother suddenly passed away, and four months later the Nazis invaded Poland. Over the next six years, Lily and her sister, Rachel, managed to stay together as they endured the hardships of life in the Vilna ghetto, concentrations camp, slave labor camps, and the dead march.
