Sophie Engelsman was born in 1926 in Rotterdam, Holland. In 1943, the population of the hospital she worked in as a nurse was evacuated to Westerbork Transit Camp. Working as a slave laborer, she survived serious illness in Sobibor, Lublin, Trawniki, Katowice, Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen and Raguhn. Liberated from Theresienstadt on the brink of death with typhus, Sophie was reunited with surviving family members, and emigrated to Israel in 1949, where she became a midwife. As a midwife, Sophie has delivered all of her 21 grandchildren.
