Edith Kozlowski was born in 1922 in Radom, Poland. Following the German invasion of Poland in 1939, Edith and her family were placed in the largest of the two ghettos in Radom. In the ghetto, Edith worked in the AVL factory, sewing German uniforms. In 1943, Edith and her sisters were sent to Blizyn, where Edith worked sorting clothes. In the summer of 1944, the sisters were transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. In December 1944, Edith was sent to Bergen-Belsen where she was liberated in April, 1945.
