Unveiling the Romanian Holocaust from a historical point of view, and through the eyes of survivors and of the Second Generation

Avital Baruch, a second Generation of the Holocaust, the author of FROZEN MUD AND RED RIBBONS, will discuss the events that led to the Holocaust in Romania, in comparison to what happened elsewhere in Europe. She will tell about the deportations, pogroms and destruction that followed in different regions of Romania, and then give glimpses from the moving story of her mother and her family. It is a story that was kept hidden for many years and is coming to light now, with  her mother's consent to break her silence, and thanks to an extensive library research and historical new documentary evidence.

This event is open to the public and to students, please RSVP to The Parkes Institute.
