About the event
In her new book, Heather Dune Macadam (co-author, Rena’s Promise) chronicles the tale of nearly 1,000 young Jewish women from Slovakia who were deceived into boarding a train for Auschwitz. Painstakingly researched, the book illuminates the women’s day-to-day lives and struggle for survival in the death camp. Join the author in conversation with Dr. Lori Weintrob (Director, Wagner College Holocaust Center) and descendants of the 999.
Children of relatives from the first transport will share the stage, answer questions and sign books with Heather Dune.
