Using false papers from the Jewish Underground, Hedy was able to hide in the open at a Catholic hospital during the last few years of World War II. Her nurse’s aide work there led to a career in medical technology and a new life in America. Hedy, now 89, shares her story with youth, and volunteers her many talents at her assisted-care residence, Rhoda Goldman Plaza, and at JFCS.
