“ONE MAN’S STORY OF SURVIVAL DURING THE SHOAH” – ARNON ADLER – TELLING HIS FATHER’S STORY – BERNARD ADLER, Z’’L
The son of Hungarian Jewish survivors of the Holocaust, born in Israel and raised in the Bronx (before departing for the Capital Region more than 30 years ago), Arnie has sought to participate in supporting our wonderful and diverse Capital Region Jewish community through Jewish education. Arnie has been sharing this emotional, compelling and deeply personal story of his father’s experiences during the Holocaust for more than fifteen years, meeting with high and college students, synagogue and religious groups, community residents and prison inmates. The story itself describes instances of inhumanity, terrible cruelty and graphic violence, but is ultimately uplifting as a symbol of the survival and redemption of the Jewish people.
Arnie Adler and his family reside in Albany and works in the field of affordable housing finance in the New York State government.
