Note(s): Adelheid Rupp, born on the eve of WWII in Ledwigshafen, Germany, was only ten months old when the German Army drafted her father. She would be over ten years old when he returned. During the interim, Mrs. Rupp spent her childhood struggling with her mother to survive Nazi Germany. Enduring the conflict and the hardship, Mrs. Rupp formed an exceptionally strong bond with her mother. Upon her father’s return, Mrs. Rupp had to adjust to two new additions to the family: her father Ernst and her new baby sister Karoline. In 1953, the Rupp family moved to the United States and Mrs. Rupp found a new set of challenges. Through it all, Mrs. Rupp has proved that she is a survivor. Presently, Mrs. Rupp resides in Pompano Beach, Florida with her husband Henry and her daughter Monica.
