Greta Ferušić Weinfeld is a retired professor of architecture at the University of Sarajevo and survivor of Auschwitz and the Siege of Sarajevo.[1]

"Greta was the only one of her family to survive the Holocaust. After the war, she studied architecture at the University of Sarajevo and was the first woman to graduate. Later she became the Architecture School's first female dean. Refusing to be dislocated when the siege of Sarajevo began in April, 1992, Greta and her husband shared in the fate of their city."

In 1997, Haris Pašović produced and directed a biographical film Greta about her.[2][3]

In February 2004 Ferusic was awarded the Polish Auschwitz Cross (Krzyż Oświęcimski).[4]
