Abstract

This is an oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Lillian Stello. Stello was born in Leszno, Poland, and was a small child when the Nazis occupied the city. Her parents were killed early in the occupation, after which she lived in the Warsaw Ghetto with her aunt and cousins. She and her cousins lived in several orphanages in Warsaw and Leszno before moving to Israel when Stello was eleven. In Israel, she lived on a kibbutz until she was sixteen, when she went to nursing school. At age nineteen, Stello met her husband, another survivor who had immigrated to the United States, and came to America with him. Stello describes her experiences during the Holocaust and in Israel, and discusses her life in America.
