Holocaust Memorial Observance

We must never forget!


It will not be long before there are

no more live witnesses to this tragedy

because of ‘greed and war.’

We must also remember that this is not the only

‘Holocaust type of tragedy’

because of ‘greed and war.’

Woman born in Auschwitz to share story in Ormond

A Holocaust survivor who was born into imprisonment in the Auschwitz concentration camp

will reflect on her family’s experiences during an April 26 Holocaust Memorial Observance

at Temple Beth El, 579 N. Nova Road, Ormond Beach.

Angela Orosz, one of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz,

was still an infant when camp prisoners were freed in 1945.

Orosz weighed only 2 pounds when she was born on Dec. 21, 1944, and was too small to cry.

Orosz’s mother, who was two months pregnant when she entered Auschwitz in 1944,

had hidden her pregnancy from the Nazis and hid Orosz once she was born.

Her mother never saw her husband again after entering Auschwitz

and also lost her father, grandparents, aunts and uncles in concentration camps.

Orosz’s 7 p.m. address,

which is free and open to the public,

is part of a local Day of Remembrance

organized by the Jewish Federation of Volusia and Flagler Counties.
