Janet Singer Applefield was born on June 4, 1935 in Krakow, Poland, and was 4 years old when World War II began. At the end of the war, a Polish family, unaware of her Jewish identity, saved her and she was ultimately reunited with her father, though her mother did not survive. After moving to the US, Janet earned her Masters of Social Work and had a full career as a clinical social worker. Janet has three children and five grandchildren and lives outside of Boston.
