Bucharest, January 1941: Amid a wave of violence unleashed by the notoriously brutal Iron Guard against the capital’s Jewish population, a couple vanishes without a trace, leaving behind a little girl in hope that she may be saved by strangers. So begins Roxanne Veletzos’ s debut novel, based on her mother’s true story. This evening she will discuss how the haunting enigma of her past twined with her research into Romania’s dark, yet little-known WWII history to deliver a tale of resilience, sacrifice and the triumph of the human spirit.

The event is sponsored by the Paul and Babey Trepman Memorial Fund of the JPL.
