    Biography
    Lusia Gliklich is the daughter of Gershon and Shifra Gliklich. She was born February 24, 1932 in Nisko, Poland. Lusia had one brother, Moniek (b. 1934). A few years after the German invasion of Poland Lusia's father was sent to the Stalowa Wola labor camp. The rest of the family then went into hiding in Nisko, where they remained until their liberation by the Soviets in November 1944. At the end of the war the Gliklichs were the only remaining Jews in town. The entire family was subsequently sent into exile in Siberia, where they remained until July 1946. After their release, the family returned to Poland for one month, before departing for Germany. While en route to Berlin, they were imprisoned with a group of displaced persons in a monastery in the Soviet zone of Germany. Two young boys in the group escaped to the French zone and returned with trucks and false papers for all of the DPs. The group then proceeded to the Schlachtensee displaced persons camp in Berlin, where the Gliklichs remained until the camp closed in March 1948. The family then moved to the Rosenheim displaced persons camp near Munich. There, Lusia married Morris Breitbart on March 22, 1949. Nine months later the couple left Germany for the United States. They were followed two years later by Lusia's parents and brother.
