Trial begins for “Accountant of Auschwitz”

The trial of former Nazi guard Oskar Groening, dubbed the “Accountant of Auschwitz” by the media, began this week.  Groening was on duty the day 94 Maidens’ Manfred (pictured on the book cover) was forced to walk through the gates of hell.

94 Maidens worked with German prosecutors to gather co-plaintiffs for this case.

#FiveStarFriday!

5.0 out of 5 stars “A superior educator, and a faithful friend to our Jewish …” By Michele Machles

“Speaking as a Jewish Educator, Rhonda Fink Whitman has proven herself to be a valuable author and teacher.  In 94 Maidens, as we make this journey with Rhonda to unravel the details of her familys’ past we are taught history and Jewish values as she generously and lovingly shares her family’s difficult truth to freedom.  It is clear Rhonda is a devoted daughter, a superior educator, and a faithful friend to our Jewish culture.  This is an excellent book and a marvelous teaching tool that recalls a very tragic and difficult period of human existence.”

Thank you so much for the kind words and for reading and recommending my book, Michele!  It makes me very happy that you connected to it in such a meaningful way! ~ Rhonda
