About Magda Bloom
Magda Bloom lives a quiet suburban life in Birmingham. She has been an active member of her local community and she has raised a notable family.
For 60 years she has lived a nightmare on a daily basis: Magda is a Hungarian Jew, deported to Auschwitz with her family, and left without them.
She lost her daughter seven years ago and the sadness of that event meant she stopped telling her own story. She feels it's time to remind people about her life experiences. Her story is truly remarkable.
Birmingham Kinereth Ladies' Group was founded by Life President Magda Bloom in 1952.
Holocaust Memorial Day, 27th January, Coventry
Coventry’s Commemoration will be in the Lower Precinct from12 noon. Martin Reeves, Chief Executive of the City Council will welcome everyone. Speakers include Magda Bloom (Auschwitz-Birkenau survivor),
A very moving ceremony of remembrance this morning for Holocaust Memorial Day in West Bromwich. Mrs. Magda Bloom, and 80-year-old survivor of Auschwitz and Belsen, frail and bent, made an emotional speech about how she had lost her entire family in Hitler's death camps. The heart breaking story of how her seven-year-old brother had been taken away from her and her mother to be dispatched to the gas chambers was horrifying.

3 Sandal Rise, Solihull, West Midlands, B91 3ET Birmingham Post Nov-01-2010. Holocaust survivor Magda Bloom launches memorial exhibition in Staffordshire Magda Bloom was just 13 when she was forced to leave her Hungarian home at gunpoint with her mother and little brother, Gyorgy.
It was 1944, and her father, an honoured Hungarian soldier, had just been killed like many thousands of other men, clearing land mines to make it safe for German soldiers to cross.
Terrified for their lives, after spending a month in a Satoraljaujhely ghetto, they were transported to the most infamous Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenhau. Daughter of Antal Sternberg and Szerén / Czitrom Sternberg Sister of Erzsébet Sternberg/Gärtner/Ungár/Rosenfeld and Ella Sternberg/Fehérvári Magda Bloom (b. 1930 in Nagyrozvágy, Hungary) describes sorting prisoners’ belongings in a section of Auschwitz II-Birkenau known as “Kanada,” where the camp guards collected the confiscated property of incoming prisoners. She hid pages from a Torah and prayer book and explains how her faith endured despite her hardships in the camp.
