The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Lily Ebert


97-year-old London resident Lily Ebert published her extraordinary memoir, Lily’s Promise: How I Survived Auschwitz and Found the Strength to Live, in 2021. The book, co-written with her 17-year-old grandson Dov Forman, recounted the death of Ebert’s mother and two youngest siblings upon their arrival at the Auschwitz camp in 1944 after being deported from Hungary, and her dedication to keeping her two other sisters alive. She and her sisters were forced to work in a munitions factory and to join a death march that they barely survived. Lily’s Promise boasts a foreword written by Prince Charles, who is a patron of the UK’s Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. (Photo: Screenshot/YouTube)
