5.0 out of 5 stars for 94 Maidens By Sally

“A must read about events that many try to deny.  Even here in the United States we were guilty of the sin of omission by not letting the St. Louis dock and unload.  All that’s required for evil to reign supreme is that people just are indifferent.”
Thank you so much for your five star review and your very kind words on Amazon, Sally!  You are so right!  Being a bystander makes you complicit.  Denial does not serve humanity. We must rise up against genocide.  Glad to have your voice on our team!  #neveragain ~ Rhonda

On the 70th Anniversary of the boarding of the St. Louis

Author/activist Rhonda Fink-Whitman with St. Louis survivor, Ronnie Breslow at the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center’s Scholar in Residence luncheon.

70 years ago today, Ronnie and her mother boarded the ship with tickets to freedom, for which they paid dearly, only to be turned back to Nazi occupied Europe by both Cuba and the US.

Pictured below, Dr. Lisa Kirschenbaum of West Chester University speaking about the siege of Leningrad at the Philmont Country Club.  Survivors and friends attended the event.

This guy!

 

There are some politicians who know what is important, tell the truth, follow up, and give credit where credit is due.  THANK YOU for continuing to champion our PA Holocaust ed law Senator John C. Rafferty, Jr.!  You are truly a stand-up guy and we are extremely lucky to have you in Harrisburg!  It’s legislators like you who renew our faith in the system. If only we could clone you in 44 more states!  God bless you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly powerful book! By Eugene Hurwitz

“Hard to put down, but hard to keep reading because of the intensity. A true story in novelized form. It helps the reader feel what it was like to be in those places at that time.”

Thank you for your kind review and for giving readers an idea of what they can expect when reading 94 Maidens​, Eugene!  So very much appreciated! ~ Rhonda
