A group of local second-generation Holocaust survivors have written and published a book documenting their families’ experiences during World War II, and five of the authors will appear to discuss their collaboration and personal family stories. Testaments of Courage in the Holocaust is a compilation of true stories told by the authors that describes the courage and resilience of their family members who escaped the Nazis’ final solution.

The authors are members of our GenerationsForward Speakers Bureau who tell their family’s story from their next generation perspective, adding new meaning to the survivors’ powerful stories of witness. Other authors whose stories appear in the book include Pat Gaston (Irvington), Tina Goldman (Ossining), Michelle Griffenberg (Tarrytown), Ziporah Janowski (Croton-on -Hudson), Gloria Lazar (Tarrytown), Joan Poulin (Somers), Vivian Pronin (Hastings-on-Hudson) Helen Rubel (Irvington), Dennis Schoen (Fairlawn, NJ), and Debby Ziering (Greenwich, CT.) In the book forward Gloria said, “The difficult journeys taken by our families reflect the ultimate triumph of the human spirit against the inhumane efforts by the Nazis to eliminate the Jews of Europe. We honor these brave men and women whose DNA we possess and whose spirit we hope to illuminate in our stories.“
