Survivor:  Joe Gottdenker

I signed up for the Sustaining Memories project for several reasons, one of which was to form a meaningful connection with a Holocaust survivor. I was fortunate to be paired with Joe Gottdenker. Joe is a fascinating person who lived a full and unconventional life. His continued zest for adventure has inspired me to step outside my comfort zone. Our families have bonded and I am certain that our friendship will last a lifetime. I am grateful to Joe for sharing his experience and trusting me with the process.
