DP Camps such as the one in Landsberg provided temporary shelter and other services as survivors struggled to rebuild their lives. A Holocaust survivor, Frania met Borys (Boris) Blum, a fellow survivor, while working to establish a kosher communal kitchen in the camp to accommodate traditional Jewish dietary practices. In 1946 Frania and Borys married. In 1950 the family immigrated to the United States.
