UCI Libraries invites you to spend the evening with Holocaust survivor Solange Pullman-Fisch. We extend a special thanks to the Jewish Federation of Orange County for their support of this program.
Solange Pullman-Fisch was born in 1935 in Sedan, a town in Northeastern France located near the Belgium border. When Germany began to invade France in 1940, Solange and her mother fled Nancy, the northeastern town in France where they resided. They traveled from town to town seeking refuge, and with the help of the local townspeople, who risked their own lives, they were kept hidden and warned to move on when the Nazis approached. Eventually, Solange her mother made it to a small farming village in Le Grand-Bourg where the mayor helped hide them for five years until World War II ended.
Solange is one of many Holocaust survivors who call Orange County home.
In conjunction with the American Library Association and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s traveling exhibition Americans and the Holocaust, the UCI Libraries’ Americans and the Holocaust Exhibition Event Series explores antisemitism, extremism, and the power of human connection. Guests are encouraged to visit the traveling exhibition during regular library hours.
