Eva Raden was born in 1936 in Püspökladány, Hungary. She was one of the youngest of eight children. Eva attended a Jewish school, where her favorite subjects were Torah study and Jewish history. In 1944, her entire family was taken to the Nádudvar ghetto. Eva and her family lived in two other concentration camps, including Strasshof, in Austria before they were liberated. After the war, Eva immigrated to the United States, where she met her future husband, Alex Raden. In the summer of 1958, Eva and Alex moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and began teaching children Hebrew at a school. They lived in Kansas City for eight years before moving to Norwich, Connecticut in 1966. Eva retired from the Krieger Schechter Day School in Baltimore. Alex and Eva are married and have two children.
