Guest Book & Memories
May 11th, 2021
My memory of Shep Eisenberg came to me through his wife Claire many years after the fact. My father George Friedman was a holocaust survivor of a work camp in Hungary and then was hidden in Budapest by Christian friends who saved his life. He rarely talked about those times, but I learned from Claire, long after they had moved away, that when we first became neighbors in our Wilmette cul de sac, my father would take long walks with Shep. During these walks, he would talk about unspeakable things that happened to him and his family during the war. I will be forever grateful to Shep for being someone that my father trusted enough to confide in and share those painful memories with. Shep was a kind, empathic man.
