About Adele Beim: Adele was born in Holland in 1937. As she witnessed her grandparents being taken away by gunpoint, never to be seen again, her father realized it was time to get his 2 children into hiding that night. Her father warned all her family members of what was to come, they unfortunately did not heed his warnings and many were murdered in the concentration camps including her mother's 5 siblings and her father's 5 siblings as well as all of her grandparents and most of her cousins.
Her father found a Catholic family who in the dead of night agreed to take Adele into hiding. She was only 5 years old. They thought it would only be for a couple of months until the war would be over. It turned into 3 /12 years. Adele was liberated in 1945 and ultimately came to the USA in 1956, got a job and married her husband in 1958. He was a holocaust survivor having suffered in many labor and death camps including Auschwitz. Adele and her family always prayed that this unthinkable treatment of Jews would never again happen but look where we are again.
