Livia Krancberg

Livia Krancberg was born October 13th, 1919, one year after the end of WW1 – the war to end all wars – only to end up living through an even more horrific war 25 years later. A Holocaust survivor who endured the unspeakable in Auschwitz, Ravensbruck and Neustadt-Glewe, she emerged from that experience to become a devoted wife, a loving mother and grandmother, a published author, a produced playwright, and a public speaker. Her compelling presentations about her Holocaust experience, spanning nearly three decades of her life, became the social conscience for the younger generations, educating and reminding them of what they must never forget in order to preserve humanity in their own future.

You spoke at my school for many years, I remember you in 2012. I was 15 then and I am now 23. You were such a wonderful person and very eloquent. Despite being in your 90s at the time you were always so welcoming and willing to share your story and empower us with love. I will never forget you. I looked you up today wondering if you still spoke and was shocked and devastated to know you had passed. You are a strong woman with the mind of a warrior and the heart of a lover. Thank you for your stories and knowledge. You will be missed.
