The Center's board of directors unanimously voted Marvin Friedman, associate director of the JCC, as its first - full-time professional executive director, effective immediately. Friedman will relieve Orlando's Jewish Federation executive director Paul Jeser, of his part-time duty as JCC executive director. JCC president Richard Appelbaum explained the decision as a "dynamic change in a time when the Center should take charge of more of its own responsibili- ties and planning" because of the tremendous growth in the community. Friedman, who came to the JCC in June 1973 as program director, will be responsible for all administrative, supervisory and physical operations of the Center as well as shaping its long-range goals. From Liberation to Home by Barbara Coenson-Roth HERITAGE Staff (as told to Unda Amon) It was 1945. Helen was now 17-years old. She and her sisters were liberated from the concentration camps. They were liberated, but they were still hungry. They wanted to grab food and eat and eat and ... but they were not allowed to. "We hated them. They had so much food and they wouldn't let us eat." But many of the inmates were sick. Helen, like so many others. had typhus. "One of my sisters was so sick she almost didn't pull through. She wouldn't talk. She wouldn't eat. She just lay there ... but she is alive today." Helen herself was sick for months. There were taken to a hospital--a church, a big hall or school made into a hospital--with hundreds of children and women. "As hungry as we were we couldn't eat. I couldn't eat. My sister couldn't eat. Many of those who did eat, a lot, died.'" There were hundreds of sick, and there was a shortage of medical personnel. One of Helen's sisters became a nurse to help her sick sisters get well. She fed them, cleaned them, sat with them. Eventually they were taken to a sanitodum in Germany where Helen and many others were cured and "given the best of care." With their health restored, they left the sanitorium and went to a camp near Berg- dasgarden, where Hitler's palace stood in the southern part of Germany.
