Never Forget
A Series Honoring Rockland's Holocaust Survivors

Please join us for the Never Forget Series, honoring our local survivors, their unimaginable struggle and tireless commitment to sharing their stories. The seeds of genocide are nurtured by small acts of intolerance. We must remember history as we stand against current anti-Semitism and bigotry in all forms.

Simon Jeruchim

The Nyack Library
59 South Broadway
Nyack, NY

Simon Jeruchim was born in Paris in 1929. In July 1942, Simon's family escaped from a major police roundup. A compassionate getile couple found separate hiding places for him and his siblings in the countryside of Normandy

In the fall of 1942, his parents tried to escape to the non-occupied zone but were arrested by the French police and turned over to the Nazis, deported to Auschwitz and perished. Simon spent almost two years in Normandy. There, a schoolmaster gave him a gift consisting of watercolors and a sketchpad, and there his love of art began.

Simon is the autor of two books, Hidden in France and Frenchy, and continues to create and display his artwork today.
