Lest We Forget: Lessons from Survivors of the Holocaust

By DEBBIE J. CALLAHAN, M.S.ED

Please join us 27 August at 7:30pm EDST in the Holocaust Remembrance group. This eBook giveaway is sponsored by member Debbie J. Callahan, M.S.Ed. To win one of ten copies, you will need an Amazon.com account to download a Kindle edition (no hard-bound copies) of the new book.

From Amazon.com: "First-hand witnesses to one of the worst events in recent history will soon be a thing of the past. With many Holocaust survivors passing away each day, it won’t be long before we must rely on textbooks and second-generation testimony to learn of the atrocities that they experienced during the reign of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. For a while longer, though, we still have this valuable resource, and many continue to share their stories with one audience after another, despite the pain of reliving the horrific events that we cannot even begin to imagine."
