Stefan Kulesza

"I was lucky that I lived"

Stefan Kulesza (102 years) survived Auschwitz as a Polish prisoner

Born 1917 in Ostrow, Poland, Stefan lost his father when he was only four. He helped his mother in the fields as best as he could.

WW2 and he was mistakenly arrested as a suspected partisan. He was incarcerated in Auschwitz where his building skills helped him survive.

After the War, Stefan migrated to Australia where he flourished, building a life, a family and a number of houses! A great migration story.
