A Silent Yizkor

Long-time JDC staffer Stanley Abramovitch describes a moving Yom Kippur that he spent with Holocaust survivors in Landsberg, Bavaria.

Born in Poland in 1920, Stanley Abramovitch has spent over sixty years in the service of JDC and the Jewish people, aiding the needy in over twenty countries on three continents. His work took him from the DP camps in Germany to the impoverished communities of Iran and North Africa, and from Western Europe and Israel to the Former Soviet Union.
