Charlotte Adelman, Holocaust Survivor, to Speak at Upcoming Jewish Family & Children Service Senior Program
August 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
Charlotte Adelman, a Holocaust survivor and Valley resident, will share her personal story at a free community event hosted by the Jewish Family & Children’s Service – Center for Senior Enrichment.
This event is on Tuesday, August 14 at 11 a.m. at the Center for Senior Enrichment, located at The Palazzo 6250 N 19th Ave. Phoenix, Arizona 85015.
Adelman was born in Paris, France and was raised in a traditional Jewish household with her mother, father and brother. In 1940, when she was eight-years-old, the Nazis invaded France and occupied Paris. She remained hidden thanks to the generosity of others and once the war ended, was reunited with her father and her brother. She traveled to Israel and to Canada, where she met her husband, Alex. They married and moved to the United States in 1957.
Her husband passed away seven years ago and it was then that Adelman decided it was time to share her story with the world.
According to Jennifer Brauner, site director at the Center for Senior Enrichment, Adelman gives many presentations to local organizations and school children.
“We are so honored that Charlotte will be joining us to share her story of bravery and resilience,” said Brauner.
