Bock Mike OHC.JPG

Mike Bock was born in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents were from Vladivostock, Russia. He discusses his childhood in Atlanta and the Jewish neighborhoods as well as the chilling effect the Leo M. Frank case had on Black Americans. His father had a shoe shop and repair business. Mr. Bock initially worked for his father and then for the Edison brothers who had a chain of shoe stores in the South. He remained with the Edisons for 40 years until his retirement. Mr. Bock recalls the effects of the Depression and World War II on the shoe business in general.
