Happy 101st Birthday to Gene Meisner! Born in Poland on July 21, 1920, Gene Sadorkiewicz Meisner survived the Łódź Ghetto and multiple concentration camps, including Ravensbrück. After the war, she was miraculously reunited with her husband Sam and the two made their way to the United States. Gene attended Brooklyn College at night while raising two children and went on to become one of the first female stockbrokers on Wall Street. This incredible woman experienced the world in its darkest days, yet her story is one of survival and success. #MazalTov Ad 120!
