Join Bernice Lerner for a discussion of her recent publication, the first book to pair the story of a Holocaust victim with that of a liberator. Lerner has unearthed and interwoven the fascinating stories of Rachel Genuth, a poor Jewish teenager from the Hungarian provinces, and Hugh Llewelyn Glyn Hughes, a high-ranking military doctor in the British Second Army, who converge in Bergen-Belsen, where the girl fights for her life and the doctor struggles to save thousands on the brink of death. Lerner, Rachel's daughter, writes with special insight about the torment her mother suffered. Sponsored by the Jewish Studies Department of the University of Delaware.
