 Fred Friedman | A Memorial – By: Robert Friedman

Fred FriedmanMy father, Fred Friedman, was born in 1926 in Salzburg, Austria. In 1938, a family friend from Switzerland helped my Dad and his family escape from Nazi-controlled Austria – just avoiding the German Concentration Camps.

From Switzerland, the family traveled first to France, then Spain and Portugal before finally arriving in the United States in 1941. My Dad was 15 years old when his family settled in Queens, New York.

Shortly after he graduated from High School in 1945, my Dad joined the United States Army. After finishing his service, he earned an Accounting Degree from New York University in 1950. In 1954, he earned a Law Degree from Brooklyn Law School and was admitted to the New York State bar in 1955. – Learn More
