Holocaust Survivors of South Jersey: Biographical Profiles

photgraphs of south jersey holocaust survivors

These brief biographies document some of the hundreds of Holocaust survivors who have lived in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland counties as well as some adjacent communities. Their life stories remind us not only of one of the darkest chapters of human history, but they are also testaments to resilience, perseverance, and the contributions of refugees and immigrants to our region, to the United States, and indeed to the world. Holocaust survivors were often married to other Survivors; where practical, both Survivor spouses are presented in a single profile.

This website is part of the South Jersey Holocaust Survivors Project of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton University. For more about the project, which includes an extensive digital archive and digital exhibition currently being developed, visit the project homepage.
