On Friday, April 21, 89-year-old Ruth Moll will take a break from her volunteer duties to participate in Cedars-Sinai's 33rd annual Yom Ha'Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) observance. As she has for many years, she will be part of a select group to light candles for the 6 million European Jews who were killed by the Nazis. She was just 10 years old in 1939 when her father was sent to a Nazi concentration camp. She and her sisters said goodbye to their mother — perhaps forever — boarded a German train and became three of the estimated 10,000 Jewish children who were saved from the Holocaust by the Kindertransport (German for "children's transport"), a series of rescues organized by the British.
