    Biography
    Rochelle Shulman (born Rochelle Szklarski) is the daughter of Yudel and Perl (Michelson) Szklarski. She was born August 11, 1932 in Skidel, Poland, where her father was a carpenter. Rochelle had four siblings: Bella (b. 1919), Kreina (b. 1921), Minia (b. 1923), and Yenta (b. 1925). In 1940 Perl Szklarski died of natural causes. Rochelle was taken in by her maternal aunt who lived in Gomel, near Minsk. After the German invasion of the Soviet Union, Rochelle and her aunt were evacuated to Belayevka and later to Durovka in the Penza region. Her father and two sisters, Bella and Yenta, survived in the USSR as well. In October 1945 Rochelle returned to Poland and stayed with her father and sisters in Lodz for a few months. In the winter of 1945-46 they migrated to Germany with the help of the Bricha and settled in the Bad Reichenhall displaced persons camp. They remained there until February 1949 at which time they sailed to New York aboard SS Marine Shark. Rochelle married Louis Shulman in April 1950 in Brooklyn, NY.
