Nashville, TN - May 6, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Esther Loeb. Esther Loeb was one of those few people you meet who have an immediate impact on your life. Her kind gestures, words, and the warmth of her presence, left everyone she met with an incredible gift. Esther Loeb survived the Holocaust and lived life to its fullest by surrounding herself with family and friends. She was committed to educating others about the Holocaust and worked tirelessly in that cause. At this year's Middle Tennessee Holocaust Education Conference she served on the panel of speakers and encouraged students to do everything they could to combat prejudice and hatred so that a Holocaust could never happen again. Esther gave freely of her time and spoke to many Tennesseans about her experiences during the Holocaust. She will be missed by everyone who knew her, but her memories and reflections will live on to inspire and comfort others for years to come.
