Holocaust Survivor Testimony
Trudy Album, born in 1929 in Czechoslovakia, was first sent to a ghetto with her family when the Nazis invaded her hometown. Later, the family was shipped to a concentration camp, where her mother and two younger sisters were sent to their deaths. Trudy was sent to work camps and was eventually liberated by the American Army.
After learning that her father had also died during the war, Album made her way to the United States and started a new life. Now a resident of Suffern, she shares her Holocaust survival story with young people and adults throughout the region.
