Short biography
Stella Müller was a 9-year-old girl from an affluent Jewish family in Krakow, Poland when the Germans invaded her country in World War II. Nothing in their experience prepared the family for the dehumanizing ghetto into which they were confined in 1941. In 1942, they were sent to the Płaszów concentration camp, where they survived as members of Oskar Schindler's "list" of necessary war workers. Stella was put to exhausting labor in a brush factory. In 1944, 300 of the Jews on Schindler's list, including Stella, were transported to Auschwitz. There she fell seriously ill; but she was saved from death by Schindler's insistence on the return of "his" workers. She and her family were sent to Schindler's enamelware factory at Brunnlitz, Czechoslovakia, and liberated by the Red Army nine months later, in May 1945.

At age 17, Stella went back to school and eventually managed to pass her final exams. She married in 1954 and again in 1968. She spent a few years in the USA but later decided to return to Poland to be closer to her parents. Her memoir, A Girl from Schindler’s List, was published in 1994.
