    Biography
    Rella Adler (born Rella Hudes) is the daughter of Isaac and Klara Hudes. She was born on September 22, 1931 in Vienna where her father worked as a cabinetmaker. She had one brother, Siegmund (b. 1923). In 1933 Rella's father went to Palestine where he remained until his death from natural causes in 1942. The rest of the family stayed in Vienna. In 1939 arrangements were made to send Rella to Holland, where she was to stay with a Catholic family. When Rella's grandmother objected to her living with Catholics, she was rerouted to England to live with a Protestant couple in Sheffield. Rella arrived at the home of Lilian and Philip Adams on June 31, 1939 and remained with them until 1947. During this entire period Rella had no communication with her family in Vienna. In 1947 Lilian Adams contacted the Jewish Refugee Committee requesting information on the fate of Rella's relatives. The response confirmed that Klara and Siegmund Hudes had been deported from Vienna in 1943 and had perished. Shortly after hearing this news, Rella was contacted by her Aunt Ida, who arranged for her to come to New York to live with her.
