A West Hartford holocaust survivor who shared her personal story for more than three decades has died. Gisela Adamski spoke at schools and holocaust memorial events in Connecticut and New York. She was a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau and other camps. A remembrance posted by the Weinstein Mortuary in Hartford says she came to the United States with an eighth-grade education and worked her way up to run a gauge-calibration company. She was the subject of a documentary, recognized by the state of Connecticut, and recently went viral on TikTok with a video in support of Joe Biden’s campaign for president.
