Greta Koriski, a Jewish victim of Nazism in Belgrade, Serbia, does not find it as easy as she would like to get to the new kosher dining room at the Belgrade Synagogue. Nevertheless, she comes every day for the food, which she calls “delicious,” and to gather with fellow survivors. The new kosher kitchen, which opened in September with funding from the Claims Conference, serves 25 to 30 Nazi victims per day. There, survivors can find a hot kosher lunch and warm companionship.

Preparations are underway to expand the kitchen’s reach, including beginning a meals-on-wheels program.

Ester Bayer, a child survivor, said, “When I enter this hall, I feel peace and tranquility. All the people who work and volunteer deserve full credit for the excellent work and effort. The food is delicious and diverse, the quantity is sufficient. To all those that have made this happen, I send a great thank you note and appreciate all their efforts.”
