Stephen Nasser was born to a Jewish family in Hungary. In 1944, during World War II, when he was 13 years old, he and his extended family were deported to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Muhldorf. All the rest of his family members perished, including his brother Andris, who died in his arms. Stephen survived and was brought to Canada by the Canadian Jewish
Congress in 1948. Ten years later, he emigrated to the USA, eventually settling in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He speaks to classes, church groups and organizations about his Holocaust experiences. While in the camps, he secretly wrote a diary, which he kept for nearly 60 years; it became the basis for his memoir My Brother’s Voice, published in 2003. It was published in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland under the title Die Stimme meines Bruders.
