National Geographic Honors the First Women in Auschwitz

Going viral is always an amazing roller coaster ride and that’s what happened for #YomHaShoah #HolocaustRemembrance after National Geographic published an interview with me about the new edition of Rena’s Promise. We had over 37,000 likes and thousands of shares. I was also the guest speaker at the Chizuk Amuno Synagogue for one of the most moving and powerful night’s of my life.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

My immediate reaction when I heard that Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn had a new book coming out was to tell my husband to call his editor at NG Book Talk and get A Path Appears in the line-up. A few weeks later we were on the phone with this amazing couple, who are doing for women’s rights and human rights what so many of us long to do but can’t get around to. It helps that Kristof’s job let’s him write a column of so many of these issues, but this dynamite husband and wife team are a real inspiration to us, as a...

Shelter Island Mermaid

At the Pirates and Mermaid Benefit last weekend, I dolled up with the help of Collette‘s in Sag Harbor and the sea.

Thanks to our host and hostess, James Goldman and Debbie Rodriguez, for opening their lovely home to a motley crew, mostly in full costume. We met a sea captain who had come all the way from Virginia Beach, local artists and other fascinating...

Yom Hashoah –  Keeping Rena’s Promise Alive in Our Hearts

What is it to you?” That was the question the woman was asking me, while we stood on the rooftop of a Brooklyn apartment building enjoying a cookout and celebrating the release of my first book. She had just been introduced to me as someone important in the Holocaust community (I won’t say how) and her response to the fact that I had just co-authored a book with a Holocaust survivor left me stunned. It had never occurred to me that the Holocaust was something that was private or unshared by the rest of the world. In fact, one of the reasons...
