Join us for a digital public program with author Helen Epstein (Children of the Holocaust, The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma) who will read from Franci’s War, a new memoir by her late mother, Franci Rabinek Epstein. Franci, a spirited young fashion designer from Prague, lied to Dr. Mengele at an Auschwitz selection by saying she was an electrician – an occupation that both endangered and saved her life.

The live reading, broadcast from Epstein’s home, will be followed by a Q&A session with viewers.
