We are stricken with sadness on the passing of Herbert Karliner, one of the
last living survivors of Kristallnacht and the SS St. Louis, on the evening of June 1, 2021. Herb was 94.
Herbert Karliner was a beloved member of the Miami community, widely
known and respected for his decades of engagement with community groups, schools, churches, and synagogues, discussing his extraordinary life experiences. He was also a ubiquitous presence as teacher and docent at the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach, helping educate generations of school children and other visitors about the Holocaust.
