Goldman, Helen Rachel  
Helen Rachel Goldman Helen Rachel Goldman, 90, died on Sunday, August 2, 2015, at the Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, Florida. Born in Metz, France, in October, 1924, she was one of three sisters. During the Nazi occupation of France, her mother and older sister were arrested, deported to Auschwitz, and murdered, her sister leaving behind a young son. A Righteous Gentile arranged for Helen and her other sister, Simone, to assume Christian identities, and each was placed in the home of a Nazi collaborator to work as a nanny. Helen's given first name was Rachel, but was given the name Helen to conceal her identity. Her nephew was taken in by a Catholic family and went to a French convent school. After the conclusion of the war, Helen and Simone emigrated to the United States and settled in Detroit, Michigan. Helen met her husband, Jack Goldman, originally from Poland, who had been liberated from Dachau, at an English class. They were married on November 6, 1948. Very shortly after their marriage, Helen's nephew, age 13, came to live with them, and they raised him as their own. He became a medical doctor and an Air Force Flight Surgeon, and rose to become a chief pathologist at a Detroit area hospital. Helen and Jack relocated to Southfield, Michigan. Jack participated in businesses, including a convenience store and a scrap yard. They retired to Florida, first in Hallandale and then Delray Beach. Jack predeceased Helen on August 15, 2014. Helen is survived by her daughter Michelle and husband, Lee, and their children, Dana and Benjamin Klein, of Poughkeepsie; daughter, Denise Birbach and family of Queens; and several nieces and nephews.
