Halina Bryks worked in the kitchen, in construction, as well as a munitions factory at Markstadt-Fuenfeichen concentration camp following the murder of her parents. After liberation by the Soviet Army, Halina made her way back to her hometown in Orkusz near Cracow. Due to the anti-Semitism of her Polish neighbors, Halina decided to move away, and traveled with her cousin to Weiden in northern Bavaria and from there to Indersdorf. As part of a group of 28 other Jewish children, Halina was sent to Israel, where they were sent to a moshav called Kfar Hittim near Tiberias.
