The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is proud to present the latest installment in the Generations Speaker Series: Alison Brown Karabin. Alison will share the story of her grandmother, Elizabeth Brown (z”l), a Hungarian Holocaust survivor who endured Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Volary death march.

About Alison: Alison Karabin was born Alison Serena Brown to Peter and Stephanie Brown in Alexandria, VA. Alison grew up in Squirrel Hill, with her younger siblings David and Rachel. She graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School and spent a year in Israel on the Young Judaea Year Course program before attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Alison graduated with a BA in History and Hebrew & Semitic studies. After college, Alison moved to Israel for 5 years, earning her MSW from Yeshiva University’s Wuzweiler School of Social Work. She returned to Pittsburgh in 2002 and worked as a Geriatric and Medical Social Worker. Alison is married to Josh Karabin and they are the proud parents of Zachary, age 9. When Alison isn’t working for Jewish Residential Services, she can be found trying out new restaurants, walking in Schenley Park, or cooking up a storm.
