Some 50 years ago the Wall Street Synagogue realized that among those attending their services, many have experienced the Holocaust first hand. There were those who were interred in the death and concentration camps. Those who evaded the camps by going to large cities and disguising their identities, in either case, they emerged at the time of liberation, and were transformed by their experience. Even those who disguised their Jewish identity and lived in major cities in which they had not been known were marked by the experience of disguising themselves and continuing their lives in such major cities such as Budapest under false identities and in some cases the Wall Street Synagogue arranged for delayed Bar Mitzvahs, and they received their Bar Mitzvah training at an advance age.
