The authorities claim that the caregiver stole more than $116,000 from Herman’s, who live in Pinecrest. The couple’s grandson, told in their retirement accounts, including compensation to be received by the will to survive the Holocaust — are all gone.

“My grandmother was killed in a tragedy that is the Holocaust, and then her only son died in the year 2015,” Micah said, Herman told the news outlet. “The fact that it was at that point in time, the housekeeper rose, and the fraudulent charges, and took advantage of her despair and depression, which I find to be disgusting.”
