Isaac Nehama was born and raised in Athens, Greece in 1927. While his family went into hiding, as German troops occupied the Greek capital in 1943, Isaac fled to Thessaly and joined a partisan enclave. Isaac’s mother and two younger brothers were captured and deported to Aushwitz-Birkenau in 1944. Isaac reunited with his father and brother, the only ones to survive the occupation and deportations, and after the war immigrated to the U.S. where he studied and obtained his master’s in electrical engineering at the University of Illinois. A volunteer for the US Holocaust Museum, Isaac has been instrumental in documenting and translating the museum’s collection of Holocaust materials from Greece and Macedonia. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with Paulette, his wife of 50 years.

Brian Berman has developed LadinoType™, a transliteration system that allows the user to type Ladino in roman characters and convert it to various Hebrew scripts, including Solitreo, Rashi, and Meruba. He is currently a law student at UCLA Law School, lives in Los Angeles with his fiancée, Katie.
