Lisl was born in Vienna, Austria, on December 20, 1927. In 1938, Lisl’s parents made the difficult decision to put her and her brother Walter on the “Kindertransport” – a British rescue operation that saved 10,000 Jewish children. Despite a seven year separation, this decision saved their lives.
After reuniting with her parents in NYC, Lisl met and married her husband who had also escaped from Vienna. In 1959 they moved to Clearwater.
While active in numerous community organizations, it was the Florida Holocaust that was her passion.
