Young, born in the shadow of the Nazi terror, survived three concentration
camps and a death march before settling first in Israel and finally
New York after the war. Eva took up cooking as a way to relax in
the middle of the night after spending a full day as a jewelry buyer
in Manhattan and later as a single mother to her two children. Now
retired, Eva and her second husband Julius split their time between
New York, Florida and a summer bungalow colony in the Catskills.
Eva has excelled at everything she tries, including cooking. In
her tiny Catskill kitchen she prepares a meal of chicken paprikash
and spaetzel. But Eva and Julius seldom eat alone and they invite
some of their bungalow neighbors, many of them also Holocaust survivors.
for dinner and an evening of remembrance.
