Leon and Lola


The Mazliach Family homepage is designed to tell the story of Holocaust survivors Lola and Leon Mazliach and their lives. These survivors set a role model for other people to live throughout disaster, use all their being to find a way out of situations, and their will to keep going. This website also serves as a place for the Mazliach family to post news, pictures, and videos to keep the memory alive.

Lola and Leon were both taken to Feldafing, Germany after they were liberated, the first all-Jewish camp opened by the US Army and hosted a large community of survivors. Feldafing was located 20 miles southwest of Munich in the American zone of occupation.
