In the two new videos – parts one and two of an as-yet incomplete five-part YouTube series – Suleman, 42, is recorded speaking to an audience at a Holiday Inn hotel in October of last year.
She explains that her father was born in ‘Jerusalem, Palestine’ while her mother was born in Lithuania.
Speaking about her mother, she explained: ‘After World War Two, she was a displaced person.
‘Her dad was forced into the Nazi army – he was a Nazi.
‘And she had one of the most horrific childhoods I ever listened to.’
She said her mother had, ‘without a doubt’, post-traumatic stress disorder after growing up ‘on the dirt floor’ in camps and witnessing her brothers dying.
‘She literally lived through hell,’ Suleman explains.
Talking about her own upbringing, she said: ‘I was raised by a chronic alcoholic father.’
She added: ‘[He was] very loving to me, very loving. Unconditionally loving.’
Her parents lived in separated rooms and only stayed in a relationship together for her sake, Suleman explained.

In December, Suleman told DailyMail.com that she is finally ‘at peace’ following her financial difficulties and the strain of having to care for her 14 children, which she said left her on the verge of suicide at one point
She said she was a hyperactive, ‘ADHD’, only child. But her mother could never give her the love she craved, she explained.
‘My mom, because of her history, I believe she was unable to express – openly express – love and affection,’ she said.
‘And I hungered for that. I longed for love. I needed to be touched and held. And to hear the words, “I love you”.’
Suleman also spoke of her experiences of college, including returning to class days after giving birth and getting the highest score on a paper.
She was in 2009 called ‘reckless’ for having octuplets via in vitro fertilization when she was unemployed and already the mother of six young children.
She has explained she didn’t want any of her frozen embryos to be destroyed.
‘Before I let my children take over the channel with fun actives, such as vegan food challenges, vlogs, grocery shopping, ect. I will soon be uploading my testimony,’ Suleman wrote in a description of her first YouTube video, posted before the testimony videos.
The video is a six-minute clip of Suleman’s children speaking at a women’s conference in Long Beach, California on October 14.
Her oldest daughter, Amerah, is seen reading a letter written to Suleman for Mother’s Day. ‘You know the song Dear Momma by 2Pac? Well honestly that song is for you – but you didn’t go to jail thank God,’ Amerah said to laughter from the crowd.
After failing to disclose earnings, Suleman pleaded no contest to a single count of misdemeanor welfare fraud in 2014 and was sentenced to community service and probation.
Last month, the mother of 14 from Laguna Niguel, California shared a video from a doctor’s waiting room showing it filled by 11 seated members of her brood.
Suleman captioned the clip: ‘When your kids fill up an entire pediatricians office. #VeryLongDay #HealthyGrowingKid’.
In December, Suleman told DailyMail.com that she is finally ‘at peace’ following her financial difficulties and the strain of having to care for her 14 children, which she said left her on the verge of suicide at one point.
Suleman first made headlines in 2009, when she revealed that she had had IVF treatment and became pregnant with eight children, even though she was the unemployed mother of six other kids.
In 2012, Suleman filed for personal bankruptcy and, months later, filmed an adult movie called Octomom Home Alone, which went on to win multiple AVN nominations in 2013, taking home the prize for Best Celebrity Sex Tape. She then began making appearances as a stripper.
Since pleading no contest to welfare fraud in 2014, Suleman has tried to escape the Octomom moniker, which she said ‘nearly destroyed me and my family.’
Suleman said that she now has a part time job as a counselor, working with men and women who suffer drug and alcohol issues and lives paycheck to paycheck, with the assistance of food stamps and residuals from the 2012 adult video.
