Holocaust Survivor Edward Herman will be sharing his personal story with Museum visitors on Friday, August 10th at 10:30 a.m. at The Florida Holocaust Museum.
Edward Herman was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1931 into an affluent Jewish family. When he ended the first grade, his father left to join the Soviet Army. After the Germans occupied Warsaw in 1939, Edward, his mother, and sister were forced to live in the Warsaw Ghetto. When the Germans began liquidating the ghetto, he hid in the attic of the home of a Christian family. His mother was able to get papers for him to cross over to Budapest, Hungary. When he reached Budapest, Edward lived on the streets until an orphanage was formed. He lived there until his mother, sister, and aunt arrived and he moved in with his aunt. In the end of 1944, he was liberated. He did not reunite with his father for ten years.
