After the war, Morris Hollender was sent to Kvetnica Sanatorium in the Tatra Mountains, where he spent several years recovering from tuberculosis.
Here he met Edith Grossman, whom he married in 1950.
Morris Hollender spent another three years in a full-body cast recovering from injuries that he sustained at Auschwitz. He and his wife settled in Libarec in the Sudaten region of Czechoslovakia where they remained until they were granted permission to leave in 1967 and were re-settled in the Boston area. Morris Hollender worked for many years as a calibration technician for Panametrics in Waltham, MA. Edith worked at Harvard University until last year, first as a scanning technician and then, for many years, classifying botanical specimens. 1989, she enrolled in a nutrition class at Harvard and wrote a paper on how prisoners survived concentration camps from a nutritional point of view, researching the caloric content of the food they were given. The Hollenders have been part of the Temple Beth Israel Community in Waltham since the late 1960s.
Morris Hollender’s cultural legacy has become a shining example of contemporary Jewish cultural transmission, informing the curriculum of such institutions and schools as New England Conservatory, Hampshire College, the Yiddish Book Center, Hebrew College, McGill University, Klezkanada and Gann Academy. He has been honored frequently at Temple Beth Israel in Waltham.
