About Ben Lesser

Born in 1928, Ben had 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Himself and his older sister Lola are the only remaining survivors of his immediate family of seven. The rest of Ben’s immediate family, as well as his extended family, fell victim to the Nazis throughout their years of persecution.

Ben is fortunate and was lucky enough to survive several Ghetto’s and concentration camps, including the well known, notorious Auschwitz, Buchenwald. Ben was liberated in Dachau.

After liberation, Ben arrived in the United States and settled in Los Angeles. He then went on to meet his wife Jean and married in 1950. Ben & Jean have been blessed with 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

From then on, living life in Los Angeles, Ben became a Realtor and had two successful Real Estate offices, Ben Lesser & Associates. He is also the past president of the Los Angeles Westside Beverly Hills Brokers Association.

Since 1995, and living life as a retired man, Ben has been devoting his time as a volunteer, speaking in schools and colleges on The Holocaust.

Ben said that he has dedicated his present life to the pursuit of preserving the memory (ZACHOR) in order to prevent the world from contracting AMNESIA.

Ben joined us for One Global Body and we were thrilled to hear his inspirational story.
