July 28 @ 1pm: “From Liberation & Loss to Love, Lemonade & Laughter”

The prisoners woke up one morning and discovered that their Nazi guards were gone. After 5 years of terror and abuse, Ettie Zilber describes the new challenges of her family after liberation- their rehabilitation and the new dangers through war-torn and divided Europe- to the USA
