In Memoriam

Erika Zador

One of our esteemed members, Erika Zador, passed away at the age of 95. Erika was the niece of composer and conductor, Eugene Zador. She was featured in the Shoah Project as a holocaust survivor, having narrowly escaped the Nazi invasion of Hungary during WWII. She immigrated to this country, studied piano performance at USC with John Crown, and taught and performed in the Los Angeles area ever since. She was a wonderful loving person who retained a fabulous sense of humor, featuring a sharp biting wit that was apparent until the very end. She died peacefully in her sleep, and will be missed very much by family and friends. Any donations in her name might be made to the USC Shoah Foundation.
