Title

Interview with Nancy Abrams, 2002

Description

Summary of an oral history interview conducted with Nancy Abrams (1938-) on February 6, 2002. The interview was part of the Louisville Jewish Family and Career Services's project to document the lives of Jewish seniors in Louisville, Kentucky.

Nancy K. Abrams was born in Louisville, and grew up in the Highlands in her youth. Her daily life included attending middle and high school, Sunday school on weekends, and socializing with friends at a Bardstown Road drug store. She and her family were largely unaffected by the local flood of 1937 and the international Jewish crisis of the Holocaust and Israeli conflicts. She maintained Jewish faith by being confirmed and participating in the NCJW, a demonstration of social service she passed on to subsequent generations in her family.
