Lola Greenspan was born in Myszków, Poland, where she lived with her parents and siblings until the start of the war. In 1940, she was taken to the transit camp in Sosnowiec for two months before being transported to Gabersdorf, a work camp in Czechoslovakia. She remained there as a worker until the Russian Army liberated the camp in August 1945. After the war, Lola moved back to Poland with her remaining sister, where she met her future husband. Soon after, Lola and her husband moved to Israel before moving to the United States in 1961.
