Holocaust survivor Rivka Kahana z’l with her grandchildren, Gil and Roni. When Rivka (née Greenwald) arrived at Auschwitz in the spring of 1944, she was tattooed with the number A-7762. She stood in line just behind her sisters, Leah and Esther, and thus all three women were scorched with consecutive numbers. While Rivka and her two sisters survived, her parents and two of her seven siblings perished in the death camp. Rivka emigrated from Czechoslovakia in 1947 and made her way to Israel, where her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren reside today.
