with elderly Holocaust survivors.
As Sandra Glicksman walked towards the private room of Inge Heilbrunn in the Grace Plaza Nursing Center in Great Neck, Heilbrunn was in a wheelchair anxiously awaiting her arrival.
Heilbrunn, an 85-year-old widow and Holocaust survivor, was visibly upset. Jewelry that she had kept in her Scrabble box was missing.
“I’ve looked all over,” Heilbrunn said, beside herself. “It’s gone. Somebody took it. ... It meant a lot to me.”
