Malka Sternberg was born in Liberec, Czechoslovakia. When the Sudetenland was given to Hitler, she and her family moved to Prague. After Hitler invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia, Malka's father escaped to Russia while her mother arranged for Malka and her brother to escape to England on a transport organized by Nicholas Winton. After the war, she was reunited with her father in Israel.
