Marsha Gaswirth is the daughter of Holocaust Survivors Libby and Leon Bakst, Z"L. In 1941, Leon and his family were forced into a ghetto, and several months later, Leon was sent to a labor camp. He eventually escaped from the camp into the Naliboki Forest where he joined the Bielski Brigade partisans, a group of Jewish resistance fighters. After spending the war fighting against the Nazis however he could, he met his future wife Libby. They made their way to a displaced persons camp in Germany before ultimately immigrating to the United States.
