5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and well documented true story, By
Laura Lemoine
“If you are interested in true stories from the Holocaust, this is a great read.  The terrible incidences are graphic so not good for those who are very sensitive to tragedy.  I know a lot of the atrocities of the Holocaust and have read true stories, but needed a break from those stories after this read.”
Thank you so much for your very favorable review and thoughtful recommend, Laura! ~ Rhonda

Reaching 4 Peace

This year, just before her birthday, Rhonda received the ‪‎best gift ever‬ from PA Governor Tom Corbett when he signed our ‎Holocaust and ‎Genocide‬ education bill!

Since then, an impressive young man named Jack Stone reached out to us after reading and connecting to 94 Maidens.  He’s an ambassador for peace‬!  Meet Jack, take the pledge at http://reaching4peace.com/ and become an ambassador for peace too!

Isn’t that what we’re all praying for?  ‪#‎AmYisroaelChai‬!

 

The Jewish Chronicle

“An educator and advocate, ‪‎Fink-Whitman‬ is no doubt proud of her accomplishment since largely due to her efforts, ‪‎Pennsylvania‬ now has a law that not only urges public schools to teach about the ‎Holocaust‬, but there is a mandate that they do so should voluntary participation fail to materialize.” – The Jewish Chronicle, Pittsburgh, PA

#TeachHolocaust

Inspired by 94 Maidens’ “The Mandate Video” and the subsequent success of PA to enact a law requiring Holocaust education, the 8th & 9th graders at Temple Shalom of Aberdeen, NJ embarked on a campaign to get more states to #TeachHolocaust.

These kids and their teachers are amazing!

Watch and share their video here:

Get inspired too!

We’ve started a national movement!

All aboard!

5.0 out of 5 stars 94 Wows By Leigh Freedman

“Writing about the horrors of the Holocaust is not easy.
What impressed me most about this book was the author’s ability to meld the past with the present and provide an unbelievably emotional journey through that dark period of time.
The author’s easy writing style made the horrors she told so much easier to absorb.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about that horrific time in our history, particularly young university students who don’t even know there was a Holocaust.”
Thank you so much for your glowing review, Leigh!  Not easy, for sure!  You nailed it!  Much appreciated! ~ Rhonda
