94-year-old Holocaust survivor reconnects with family that saved her life
The story of life and bravery amid death and destruction begins nearly a century ago in Poland.

A 94-year-old Holocaust survivor, the mother of the prominent Israeli businessman Yossi Maiman, has reconnected with the Polish family who saved her life and that of her own mother by sheltering them from the Nazis in Poland during World War II.

Esfira Maiman was born in 1914 in the central Polish city of Lodz, where her family was in the textile business.

After the German invasion of Poland in 1939, she and her parents made their way to Warsaw, where they were incarcerated in the Warsaw Ghetto.
