In this recording of our live event from Tuesday, March 24, author Helen Epstein (Children of the Holocaust, The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma) reads 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.

After the reading, Helen Epstein answers questions from the online audience.
