    Collection Creator
    Masha Porozowski
    Masha Porozowski was born in Bialystok. Before the war, she married Natek Klementinowski and had a daughter, Debora. The family was transferred from the Bialystok ghetto to Majdanek in 1942. Masha was selected for work duty and eventually deported to Auschwitz. After a brief period of time, she was sent to Hindenburg (where she reunited with her sister, Bella Porozowski Kagan), and then the sisters were forced on a death march to Bergen-Belsen, where they were liberated. Both Masha and Bella contracted typhus in Bergen-Belsen; unfortunately, Bella died soon after liberation. Masha lost her husband, daughter, and her entire family in the Holocaust, save one brother, who immigrated to Palestine before the war. After recovering from her illnesses, Masha joined him in Palestine where she remarried and became Masha Weinstein
