Healing & The Holocaust -- Through the Eyes of a Child

Healing & The Holocaust -- Through the Eyes of a Child

August 10, 2021

Bending Toward the Sun: A Mother and Daughter Memoir is a powerful story of survival, healing and the generational impact of trauma. The story begins with the memories of Rita Lurie, who was only five years old when the Nazis invaded Poland and she and 14 members of her Jewish family hid for two years, often freezing and starving, in a small farmhouse attic. Very few children survived the Nazi genocide of Jews and the grueling refugee years following World War II, let alone found their way to America to become an inspiration to their children and grandchildren.  Lawyer and human rights activist Leslie Gilbert-Lurie, who co-authored this memoir with her mother, joins Anne to share her Mother's remarkable story, insights about generational trauma and inspiring lessons about the strength and resilience of the human spirit.
