Wednesday, January 27, 2021 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
What they thought would be a week or two in an attic turned into almost two years. From the summer of 1942 to mid 1944, Rita Lurie and fourteen members of her family shared a nearly silent existence in a cramped, dark attic, subsisting on scraps of raw food.
Young Rita watched helplessly as first her younger brother then her mother died before her eyes. Motherless and stateless, Rita and her surviving family spent the next five years wandering throughout Europe, waiting for a country to accept them.
Leslie Gilbert-Lurie and her mother, Rita Lurie, provide powerful—and inspiring—evidence of the resilience of the human spirit, relevant to every culture in every corner of the world. By turns unimaginably devastating and incredibly uplifting, this firsthand account of survival and psychological healing offers a strong, poignant message of hope in our own uncertain times.
Rita Lurie, that little girl who hid in the attic will be at this program. She will read an excerpt from the book and will be available for questions at the end of the program.
