Father's Day 2020 Recipes from Holocaust Survivors Settled in South Jersey Communities in Atlantic and Cape May Counties
As we celebrate Father’s Day, we can lovingly look back and remember our dads (sometimes moms) preparing special recipes that they brought from their childhoods into their own kitchens. After WWII, as Holocaust survivors settled in South Jersey communities in Atlantic and Cape May Counties, some of these recipes were brought from Europe into their kitchens in South Jersey. For Father’s Day 2020, the staff of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton University are sharing stories and recipes of some of our local Holocaust survivors.
