Saul was born in Tarpa, Hungary in 1930 to an observant Jewish family with seven children. At age thirteen, he and his family were removed from their home and sent to Auschwitz, where his parents and younger sister perished. Saul was sent to work in a coal mine camp and months later he was forced on a death march to the Buchenwald concentration camp where he was liberated in 1945 by the U.S. Armed Forces. Saul returned to Hungary in search of surviving relatives and quickly decided to join the “aliyat noar,” youth migration to Israel. Upon arriving, he joined the fledgling Israeli Air Force and remained in the country for seven years before traveling to the United States to reunite with his surviving siblings. There he met his future wife, Viola Schlesinger. They had two sons, Robert and Andrew. Saul now resides in Bal Harbor, Florida and volunteers at the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach.
