From Bergen-Belsen to Springfield a Story of Holocaust Survival and Beyond

Local Author Book Talk – March 16

Saturday, March 16 | 3 – 4:45 PM | Ages 15 and up

Celebrated author Hanna Perlstein Marcus shares the story of her early family history described in two gripping, multiple award-winning books Sidonia’s Thread and Surviving Remnant. As Holocaust survivors, Ms. Marcus and her mother traveled over 3,700 miles from the nightmare of Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp to eventually settle in a mid-century North End Springfield neighborhood. The family found refuge in Springfield along with other ethnic groups looking for a better future.

Copies of her books will be available for purchase and signing. Refreshments compliments of the Friends of the Library.

Note: This program is done in cooperation with the East Springfield Neighborhood Council, and is being held at the East Springfield Neighborhood Council Building (1437 Carew Street behind the Pottenger School).
