Short biography
Sara Tuvel Bernstein was born to a large Romanian-Jewish family. She left her rural village at the age of 13 with a scholarship to attend gymnasium (high school) in Bucharest. However, she was unhappy at the school and eventually quit. She decided to become an apprentice to a dressmaker rather than return home. She was a well-paid seamstress of high fashion, able to assist her family financially, when World War II began. She fled to Budapest, Hungary, but there she and her younger sister Esther were captured and sent to a Hungarian labor camp. In 1944, they were deported to the Ravensbrück concentration camp. Their conditions got worse as they were transported from camp to camp near the end of the war. Sara and her sister survived. After the war, she married Meyer Bernstein, a tailor and Holocaust survivor, and emigrated to Canada, and later to the USA. Her memoir The Seamstress was published in 1999.
