Gilner, Ann Dubin OHC.JPG

Anne Dubin Gilner was born in Jersey City, New Jersey although her parents immigrated to the United States from Poland and Russia. She attended public schools in New Jersey and then went to work in Washington, D.C. during the Depression in one of the recovery programs instituted by President Roosevelt (National Recovery Act). Anne met and married Abe Gilner, whose family was in the meat business in Atlanta. The extended Gilner family operated a slaughterhouse and then later got into wholesale meal and the delicatessen trade. Anne discusses her adventures in New York City (visiting a speakeasy), her life in Washington, D.C., and her travels to Atlanta and Florida. Originally she didn't like Atlanta as she felt that was nothing to do for a young person. Anne and Abe were married in Atlanta by Rabbi Geffen and she settled here permanently and helped to run the Gilner's various family businesses. Anne discusses the social and Jewish life in Atlanta, including keeping kosher, the Depression, the Jewish clubs, her volunteer activities with Hadassah, ORT, the Ahavath Achim Sisterhood, and the National Council of Jewish Women, her extended family, and her children, Donald and Elaine. Although most of her family made it out of Europe before the Holocaust, Anne discusses an incident where she went to Cuba to rescue a member of the family who had made it that far and then was refused admittance to the United States because of a lung problem. Anne managed to convince the authorities that the girl would not be a burden and that the family would take care of her.
