After the war, Alzbeta married Samuel, a Holocaust and concentration camp survivor, and, together, they rebuilt their lives. Their sons, Peter and George, were born in 1949 and 1955 respectively. Alzbeta went back to school and earned a diploma in economics. When the Russians invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968, Alzbeta and Samuel decided to immigrate to Canada.
In Canada, Alzbeta spent the first 10 years working long hours in retail jobs. Unfortunately, Samuel soon became ill, leaving Alzbeta as the sole supporter and caretaker for her ailing husband for five long years. After Samuel passed away in 1976, Alzbeta created a small business, taking care of her sons while employing others and contributing to the economic growth of Canada.
