Mrs. Anneliese Nossbaum, was the guest speaker Friday evening during services. The following Sunday morning, she spoke to more than 175 Adat Chaverim students and their parents. During her talk, she shared pictures of her childhood and artifacts including a metal hair brush and soap dish that belonged to her during her internment. Attendees said that “it was an incredible experience for our students and parents to learn firsthand about her upbringing.”
Nossbaum a Holocaust survivor, grew up in Bonn, Germany. She was 12 years old when her internment by the Nazis began. For the next four years of her young life, she was forced to perform slave labor in the Theresienstadt (Terezin) ghetto. She was then deported to Auschwitz/Birkenau, and then Mauthausen, where the American Army liberated her and 80,000 other prisoners in early May 1945.
Anneliese is on the road of perpetual remembrance. She is a well-known lecturer and has brought her experiences to high school and college students, to private and governmental organizations in her immediate area, as well as internationally traveling to Germany and Austria. Her complete lecture has been incorporated in a German book (Frauenleben im NS-Alltag). English excerpts have been published in various American publications. She is the mother of two children and grandmother of four.
Nossbaum currently resides in Philadelphia.
