Daughters of Miriam Center/the Gallen Institute hosted a Holocaust remembrance ceremony that included nursing home residents and apartment tenants who are Holocaust survivors, children of Holocaust survivors, or fought against the Nazis and their allies. The program was led by Rabbi Moshe Mirsky, DOMC’s director of religious services.
Survivor Milton Yudkowitz was sent to work at a factory near the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria. After the war ended, he lived in a refugee camp; he immigrated to the United States in 1949, and met his late wife, Gloria. Mr. Yudkowitz owned kosher butcher shops in the Newark and Passaic area, for years he supplied kosher meat to Daughters of Miriam Center.
