Alicia Appleman-Jurman Photographs

Alicia Appleman-Jurman was only 11 years old when the Nazis invaded and occupied Poland.  Alicia survived the World War II and the Jewish Holocaust, the only member of her 7-person family (father, mother, 4 brothers) to do so.  She swore on the grave of her oldest brother, Zachary, that, were she to survive the War, she would bear witness to others about the atrocities she witnessed and experienced.

Appleman-Jurman began by speaking in schools and synagogues and with youth groups, but eventually the children who heard her story asked her to write it down so that their parents could also hear her story.  Alicia: My Story, which she wrote over a 3-year period starting in 1982, is her answer to those children's requests.  The book is now a staple in Holocaust education around the country.

This digital collections consists of 45 photographs depicting Alicia's post-war journey from Europe to Israel and her life in Israel and Cyprus.
