Guta Blass Weintraub was born to Jewish parents in Lodz, Poland. Not long after Guta entered secondary school, the Germans invaded Poland. Guta was forced to work in labor camps until 1944, when she was deported to the Majowka camp. From there, she was deported to Auschwitz and Ravensbrück. Guta was released to the Swedish Red Cross in April 1945.
