I am so grateful I had the opportunity to meet Carl at a performance of SURVIVORS at JCC CenterStage. Our gratitude to Carl for sharing his story and our deepest condolences to his family. Holocaust survivor Carl Voldman's memory is and will continue to be a blessing... and an inspiration.

Dear Aileen & family, I'm so very sorry for your loss and indeed the whole community's loss. Since Ancestry.com says we are cousins, it is likely that Carl was also related to me. May his memory be for a blessing and may you be comforted among the mourners of Zion & Jerusalem. Carl's pictures on the Rochester Holocaust Survivors Archive are powerful memories: http://jewishrochester-chai-archive.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/individualResourceFolders/VoldmanCarl/VoldmanCarl2.html Bonnie Abrams

We are terribly saddened to learn of Uncle Carls recent passing. Carl represented so much to so many people in Rochester and the wider Jewish community. He symbolized the American dream by escaping unimaginable circumstances in Europe, built a beautiful family in a new land, created a successful soda pop business, and was brave enough in his later years to share his journey as a Holocaust survivor to a national audience. On a personal note, Carl was our last living uncle and link to our parents, Sonia and Murray Morgan. Over the years he told stories our parents blocked out to shield us as children. There were also stories that made us laugh and feel as though we were all back together in their living room. We will miss Carl tremendously, but know he is reunited with his wonderful, loving family. We will carry his lasting legacy with us and keep his stories alive by passing them down to future generations. Always Remember, Never Forget.
