Pola Rusinek (Frejlich) Fraley died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 91 on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 taking her place among the last living Holocaust survivors to bear witness to the Nazi persecution of World War II. Born in Sosnowic, Poland, her life was a testament to the enduring spirit and determination of a remarkably resilient generation, reminding her family through the years that "G-d has been good to me". She was predeceased by her beloved Simon, also a Holocaust survivor, who she met in the Zeilsheim (Germany) Displaced Persons Camp after liberation from a concentration camp in Parschnitz, Czechoslovakia. She and Simon came to America with their first child in 1949, raising their family in Atlanta and living the American entrepreneurial dream. They were founding members of Hemshech, organization of Holocaust survivors and descendants. Above all else, she devoted her life to her family feeling blessed to see her children living in freedom in America. She was also predeceased by her parents Abraham and Sara Rusinek and seven siblings whose lives were taken during the Holocaust. She is survived by her son, Steven and daughter-in-law Marian and granddaughter Shayna, and her daughter Phyllis. She was also predeceased by her sister Jean Greenbaum, a Holocaust survivor, who joined her in Atlanta with her husband, Isaac and their children Felice Greenbaum Friedman and Judy Greenbaum Croy and their families.
