Lisl was a beautiful and caring woman who personified strength in so many ways. Her kindness to my parents, Herb and Rella Maier, was unmatched. I will treasure my memories of her. She used her second chance in life to share her story. The world has lost a beacon of light.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Alice was such a wonderful person and I loved seeing her and talking with her over the years. I will miss her greatly. My prayers are with your family.

We first met LIsl in October 1987 in the Simon Wiesenthal Chicago Office. Our conversation brought us to join our efforts and educate students in the Chicago, Belvidere & Rockford area. From that day until 2009 we were involved with classes to educate students about the Holocaust. I would give a history of prejudice, racism and hatred leading to the Holocaust. This would lead into an introduction of Lisl to give her story of her time in the Nazi camp and survival. Her presence with 1st hand experience always brought questions and left an impact on the students.
Betty and I will be forever grateful that we had the extreme privilege that she was part of our lives.
