Judy Abrams, twelve years old, poses for a photograph on board the SS Scythia in 1949. This photo was taken during her journey from Budapest, Hungary, to Halifax, Canada. Judy survived the Holocaust as a hidden child in Budapest. When Germany occupied Hungary in March 1944, Judy’s mother arranged for Judy to be sent to a convent of Ursuline nuns, where Judy lived under the false identity of a Catholic girl, Ilona Papp. For six months Judy lived in the convent and concealed her Jewish identity. When the war ended, Judy was reunited with her parents, and together they boarded the SS Scythia and immigrated to Canada. Today, Judy divides her time between Montreal and New York and shares her story of survival with students across Canada.
