We grieve at the loss of such great and strong woman, Lisa Derman, and would like to share some memories.
We first met her and Aron at the Seder at my cousin Orah’s apartment in Chicago on April 8, 1982. It was our second day in the USA after we left the former Soviet Union. We knew their story of survival during the Holocaust from her, her relatives and from the latest film shown on PBS TV channel about her and Aron trip to Poland.
In 1982 Lisa and Aaron arranged the trip of their rescuer/righteous Tadik from Poland to Chicago. We invited him for dinner in our apartment at North Shore Street. During the dinner he recalled various episodes of their rescue.
We met their sons Daniel, medical student, in Chicago in 1982 and Gordi in Ann Arbor, MI in 1983 where he was a resident in medical school. We met Daniel and Gorgi with families on many occasions celebrating Jewish Holidays and Bat Mitzvah.
Our deepest Condolences to all Derman’s family,
Matus and Victoria Stolov.
