November’s Featured Speaker: Rosa Blum, Holocaust Survivor: “Love Travels On A Gravel Road”
Rosa Blum was raised in a privileged home in the Romanian Alps. She was captured by the Nazis and held in Auschwitz. She witnessed her parents, baby sister, and beloved grandmother being taken to the crematorium.
Rosa was taken by GIs on a Navy ship to New Orleans. She was rescued by Dallas Jewish Family Services. Later, she married the man of her dreams.
Despite what she lived through, Rosa chooses to keep a positive outlook on life. She said she erased many of the horrific sights from her memory and tries not to dwell on them.
