A Little Bit of History Right Here at PBMS
In culmination of the 8th grade ELA, Anne Frank/WWII Unit, students at PBMS were visited by Mr. Bob Fischer, a Holocaust survivor, born in the former Czechoslovakia in 1935. In 1941, Bob and his family fled their homeland for refuge in Hungary. A year later they returned to Czechoslovakia and shortly thereafter were interned in the Theresienstadt Ghetto Camp, north of Prague where they remained until they were liberated by the Soviet Army in May, 1945. In 1948, at the tender age of thirteen, Bob (as he insisted everyone call him) immigrated to the United States where he enrolled in school for the first time, entering the seventh grade, where he learned English. Bob attended UF and later earned a degree in accounting from UM, where he also won a state championship for basketball. He worked in the not-for-profit field for seven years in Jacksonville, then five years in Pittsburgh, followed by forty years in New York City before retiring and returning to live in Jacksonville, again.
