“It wasn’t my choice to write this story…it was my responsibility.” ~ Rhonda Fink-Whitman is a veteran TV and radio personality as well as an award-winning screenwriter, longtime Jewish educator and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. 94 Maidens is her first novel.
Rhonda is the director, producer, and host of The Mandate Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V4bmm6yJMw which, with a gubernatorial signature on June 26, 2014, historically changed the landscape of education in her home state of Pennsylvania by convincing PA legislators to enact a law requiring Holocaust and Genocide education in all public, charter, and cyber schools. Since Rhonda’s video went viral, and with her guidance, Michigan and Rhode Island have also mandated Holocaust and Genocide education. In 2015, Rhonda received both Congressional and State recognition for her work and her commitment to Holocaust education.
