He lived with his parents, two brothers and both sets of grandparents. He survived the ghettos in Nadudvar and Debrecen, slave labour in Austria and the eventual deportation to Bergen-Belsen. He was liberated in April 1945 by the 9th US Army from a death train. His mother, father and both brothers also survived. Leslie immigrated to Canada in 1967.
