Freda – Holocaust Survivor Story

Freda feels more secure with an emergency response system.
Frieda was born in a Tulchin Vinnitsa, Ukraine. After the Nazis occupied the town, Freda and her family were taken to a camp, Pcchora, where, in a gruesome beating, she lost her hearing. Only nine years old, she escaped the camp daily and retrieved food for the family. In 1944, she was liberated from the camp by the Russian army.


Freda is now 80+ and lives alone in a low income HUD building in Florida. She suffers from dementia and dizziness, and has fallen a few times over the years. The Blue Card provided Freda with the emergency response system to help her feel more secure; in the event of a fall, she can immediately call for medical help.
