    Biography
    Ella Brecher was born in 1905 in Olomuac, Czech Republic, Austro-Hungary. Ella married Benedykt Lieberman (1896-1950), an economist. The couple first lived in Olomuac and then settled in his hometown, Stanislawow, Poland (now Sasiv, Ukraine). Benedykt's father owned a yeast and alcohol factory there. They had one daughter, Hanna, born in 1930. Ella opened a primary school with Hanna's nanny in the 1930s. Most of the Lieberman family immigrated to Palestine from late 1935-1939, where they operated a farm near Nahariya. In 1939, Ella, Benedykt, and Hanna also immigrated to Palestine. Ella, 38, committed suicide in 1943.
