Happy 100th Birthday, Lily

Let’s all wish a Happy 100th Birthday to this incredible human! Holocaust survivor Lily Ebert was born in Hungary on December 29, 1923. She was 20 years old when she and her family were deported to Auschwitz. Lily’s mother and younger brother were immediately sent to the gas chambers. Lily survived.

Today, Lily lives in London and has detailed her experience in a memoir, “Lily’s Promise.” With over 2 million followers on TikTok, Lily uses the platform for Holocaust education and sharing her experience, with the help of her great-grandson Dov.

This year, Lily was awarded her MBE by King Charles at Windsor Castle. MBE stands for Member of the Order of the British Empire, which is given for outstanding achievement or service to the community that is exceptional and has a long-term impact, serving as an example to others.
