Happy Thanksgiving!

Much to be thankful for this year!

We got our Holocaust and Genocide education bill passed in Pennsylvania and we’re working on similar legislation in Michigan, Massachusetts, Iowa, Ohio, Canada, and Italy!!!

Please keep sharing The Mandate Video and spreading the word about 94 Maidens!
This has become an international cause because the world continues to show us everyday what happens when hatred and bigotry goes unchecked.  History repeats itself when we don’t learn.

Wishing all of our readers/viewers/advocates/friends and their loved ones a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving! ~ from Rhonda and her team at 94 Maidens.

 

 

#FiveStarFriday!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, By AJP

“Rhonda Fink Whitman tells her family story.  She has a gift with words and you do not want to put the book down until you have finished the book.  I got so engrossed in the story that my emotions got the best of me.  An amazing story by an amazing writer.  Reminder is so true, those who do not remember history are bound to repeat it.”

This 5-star review is near and dear to my heart, AJP!  Your words live on and just like you, are unforgettable!  With love and gratitude always ~ Rhonda

Life in a Jar, The Irena Sendler Project

Irena Sendler defied the Nazis to save 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. One person CAN make a difference.  Something to ask yourself.  What can I do?

Historic Congregation B’nai Abraham’s David Mink brought this most meaningful program to Philadelphia from rural Kansas.  Yasher Koach!

Picture Perfect!

Students at Temple Judea of Bucks County, PA created “thank you” picture frames for Holocaust survivors Ilse Lindemeyer (who was on the Kindertransport) and Ronnie Breslow (who was on the St. Louis) from when they shared their testimony with them last month.  On the stones surrounding the frames the children wrote short phrases and wisdom they learned from each survivor and included heartfelt thanks.  Beautiful!

Rodeph Shalom in Philly

What a well-attended wonderful event at Rodeph Shalom this weekend!  It was great to see some old friends in the crowd and meet some fabulous new ones!  What a smart, involved audience!  They got all of Rhonda’s questions right!  Thank you for inviting Rhonda Fink-Whitman to be your Kristallnacht 76th Anniversary speaker!  Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! 

Holocaust Museum Houston

So honored to have a place along side the many important books on the esteemed shelves at HOLOCAUST MUSEUM HOUSTON!

Many thanks to the museum for offering it to their guests and to our friend Dawn who spotted it there during a recent visit and snapped this pic!

Made our day!  :)

5 out of 5 stars!  This Book is A Treasure!  By Avid Reader
“As you ride the emotional roller coaster that is this book you become part of the story. The characters are so real that you experience every event as if you are alongside them. This is a real page-turner and is difficult to put down! You’ll learn something from the struggles described in this book. Rhonda-Fink Whitman really knows how to tell a story. Dive into this book and savor every page! It is the best read of the year!”
Thank you so much for the excellent review, Avid Reader!  Reading this made my day!  I hope everyone enjoys 94 Maidens as much as you did!  With much gratitude ~ Rhonda

Election Day reminder

Just a bipartisan reminder before Election Day who our champs were in passing the Holocaust ed bill in PA. We had Gov. Tom Corbett’s signature on a mandate from day one. Tom Wolf said generically that he was “for Holocaust education” but several subsequent attempts to clarify whether or not he supported REQUIRED Holocaust ed were ignored. Senator John C. Rafferty, Jr. and Tommy Tomlinson for State Senate and Rep. Brendan Boyle who is running for Congress were all instrumental in making it happen and imho deserve your vote tomorrow. Thank You!
