Holocaust survivor Alice Adamek (née Herman) was born on February 1, 1926 in Bunkovce in Czechoslovakia. Alice and her family were moved from their homes to the Uzhgorod ghetto on the first day of Passover in 1944. They were deported to Auschwitz on Shavuot and Alice’s parents were gassed immediately upon arrival. Alice and her sister Frida were forced on the infamous Auschwitz death march in January 1945. They were taken to the Ravensbrück women’s camp, where they were liberated by the Red Army in late April. Alice traveled back to her hometown and found that all of her family’s belongings had been ransacked by the neighbors and were now living in their homes. She emigrated to Australia in 1950 and raised a loving family. Alice has 11 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and currently lives with her children in Sydney. She is pictured here with her great-grandson Judah Friedman. While the Nazis used “Judas” as an expression of humiliation, this little boy was given the name of Judah with love and pride.
