Destination Unknown

We had an amazing time with Tania from 94 Maidens at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in NYC at a private screening of Destination Unknown.

This new Holocaust documentary must be shown in every classroom around the world!

Many thanks to our friend Bonnie Glogover of Convertibles Pantyhose for the grand invitation!  We were honored to meet such wonderful people and witness such an important event!

5-star-rating

From Goodreads:  “A beautifully written book about the German/Jewish Holocaust and a family that lived through the hell.  This is a true, interwoven story that captures your attention from the first pages and true attitude of people who just don’t understand.  Teenage attitude, husband’s impatience all turn into a rare opportunity to learn not just about the Holocaust but to learn about your family and the history of survival.  It is a quick read, mostly because you just can not stop!” by Carol

Thank you, Carol!  Your kind words are so insightful and very much appreciated!  I agree, life is full of opportunities to learn.  We just have to remain open to it.  I hope everyone finds 94 Maidens as meaningful as you did!  ~ Rhonda
