KENILWORTH, NJ – Holocaust survivor Maude Dahme visited Harding Elementary School this week to share her experience with the 5th grade class and show her video, “The Hidden Child.”

Daume was born in the Netherlands in 1936. At six-years-old, she and her sister were separated from their parents and hidden with a Christian family. Once the war ended, she was reunited with her parents, moved to New York at age 14 and married.

“She spoke of her experiences hiding from German troops, helping another Jewish boy, and then meeting and rejoining her parents three years later,” Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini wrote in his weekly roundup.

Today, Maude resides in Flemington and serves on the New Jersey Commission of Holocaust Educations. She was the president of the State Board of Education for five years and has a Holocaust Commission award named in her honor. She dedicates her time to Holocaust education and penned her memoir, “Chocolate, The Taste of Freedom,” along with co-writer and editor Maryann McLoughlin of Stockton University’s Sam & Sara Schoffer Holocaust Research Center.

After her story, students were able to ask Dahme questions and watch “The Hidden Child.” The visit came after the students read Lois Lowry’s “Number the Stars,” a story about a Danish girl during World War II.
