Event Details

Description

Rebecca Frankel, author of Into the Forest: A Holocaust Story of Survival, Triumph, and Love will read and answer questions In person on Sat., Nov. 20 at 3p in Room 3209 at Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus. "An uplifting tale, suffused with a karmic righteousness that is, at times, exhilarating." ―Wall Street Journal In the summer of 1942, the Rabinowitz family narrowly escaped the Nazi ghetto in their Polish town by fleeing to the forbidding Bialowieza Forest. They miraculously survived two years in the woods― through brutal winters, Typhus outbreaks, and merciless Nazi raids―until they were liberated by the Red Army in 1944. After the war they trekked across the Alps into Italy where they settled as refugees before eventually immigrating to the United States. During the first ghetto massacre, Miriam Rabinowitz rescued a young boy named Philip by pretending he was her son. Nearly a decade later, a chance encounter at a wedding in Brooklyn would lead Philip to find the woman who saved him. And to discover her daughter Ruth was the love of his life.
