All the Horrors of War, tells the remarkable stories of Rachel Genuth, a poor Jewish teenager from the Hungarian provinces, and Hugh Llewelyn Glyn Hughes, a high-ranking military doctor in the British Second Army. The two converge in Bergen-Belsen, where the girl fights for her life and the doctor struggles to save thousands on the brink of death.
Bernice will be in conversation with 3GNY board member Shannon Saks, whose grandmother was liberated from Bergen-Belsen. Shannon will share snippets of her grandmother’s story, discuss how she relates to Bernice’s book, and share how her family history has shaped her involvement with 3GNY.
