Faye Serkin and Shirley Speyer honor their parents Ester and Abe Freeman, who were
both from Pabianice, Poland. Ester and her sisters were all Holocaust survivors;
Ester spent much of the war with her sister Sally, where they worked in an office
in Freiberg, keeping airplane building plans in order. After the war, Esther brought
the family to Nashville, where she raised her family. Speaking of her sister, Sally
Wolkoff says that “she was my better half.” Abe Freeman died in 1999, and Ester died
four years later.
