Displacement Camp Photo of Holocaust Survivor Helen Greenspun

Photo of Holocaust survivor Helen Garfinkel at  the  Ainring, Germany Displacement  Camp where she lived  from 1946 to 1948. The  displaced  persons  camp  (DP Camp) was a former German Air Force base located  near Freilassing  ten miles from Hitler’s palace.  She came to the United States of America for the first time  in 1949 when a Jewish agency sponsored her move. She and her husband, Joe Greenspun, also a Holocaust survivor, met at Ainring DP Camp. When the camp closed in 1949 Helen Garfinkel moved to Pittsburgh and Joe Greenspun to Cleveland. They became reacquainted through a friend and were married in Detroit in 1951. In 1973 Mr. and Mrs. Greenspun settled  in  Orlando with their two daughters, Pauline and Rita.

Helen Garfinkel Greenspun  was selected by Orlando Magazine, January 2010, as a “Good Neighbor Who Gives from the Heart” for her contribution to the Central Florida community volunteering for the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida.
