Book Signing -- How We Survived: 52 Personal Stories by Child Survivors of the Holocaust  
Sunday, February 12, at 3:00 pm

"[T]he Nazis force-marched us, along with thousands of other Jews, towards Germany. With no time to prepare for this arduous journey, dressed only in summer clothes and dress shoes, my dear mother struggled to keep up. One day, she asked the guards to permit her to ride with me on a horse drawn wagon, where I was put with other children. That request became her death sentence. A short time later, I heard shots and I never saw my mother again. In the autumn of 1944, at almost eight years old, I was left without my mother....I tried my best not to cry - to please her and to be good."
- Eva Brettler

Join us this Sunday, February 12, for a book signing with local Survivors whose compelling stories of survival are included in the newly published second edition of  How We Survived: 52 Personal Stories by Child Survivors of the Holocaust.
