Sally was born in Hungary in 1926. During the first few years of the war she and her family were imprisoned in the Lodz ghetto, until they were taken to Auschwitz. On April, 14, 1945 she was released from the camps, where she was being forced to work in an ammunition factory.
Despite the pain, she was determined to rise again. Sally married her husband, who was a Holocaust survivor as well. A few years after the war ended they moved to America and adopted a daughter. In the U.S., they started a worldwide packaging and shipping business.
Throughout the years she stayed active with her fellow Survivors, spreading awareness about the Holocaust and bringing about unity as a result. She has been on the board of the Child Survivors Organization, where she shares her story and engages in numerous projects so that the world will not forget what happened. Her dream is a society in which there is no anti-Semitism, racism and separation of people due to differences.
Sally was the first Holocaust Survivor that was invited to a HHW event and since has acted as a vital link between the organization and the Survivors. Her spirit, advice and support have collectively made a sizeable impact on the organization.
"You have to avoid confrontation in any form. Differentiating religion, color, nationality, only causes war and in war, nobody wins. Allow everyone to believe in what they want to believe in. Let’s live together in peace." – Sally Dauman
