Join our community in observance of Yom HaShoah, Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day via Zoom. The program is dedicated in memory of Margit Feldman who passed away of COVID-19 complications one day before the 75th anniversary of her liberation at Bergen Belsen.

Local Holocaust survivor Maud Dahme will share her story of survival.

For Zoom information e-mail Lauren Edelman at the Federation office:

Maud Dahme was born in 1936 in the Dutch town of Amersfoort, four years before the Netherlands surrendered to Hitler. Ms. Dahme and her sister hid for three years with a Christian family, the Spronks, in Olderbroek, a Dutch farming village of Elberg. In 1946, Elberg was liberated by the Canadian army. She and her sister reunited with their parents. When she was fourteen, she and her family moved to New York City to start a new life. While working as a flight attendant, Ms. Dahme met her husband, Hans Dahme. She now devotes her life to Holocaust education, speaking to adults and children about her experience.
