Aviva Gat who grew up at CTJ, will be speaking about her book “My Family’s Survival”.
In 1937, the Shwartz family lived a calm life in their small village in Poland. Fifteen-year-old Rachel liked to sing and go out dancing at a local night club, while her older brother David was busy running a farm and raising a family with his wife Hinda. But all that changed when the war reached Butla. My Family’s Survival is the incredible true story of how the Shwartz family survived the Holocaust. It is a powerful tale of one family’s triumph during history’s darkest moments. The book is available for sale on Amazon and copies of the book will be available for sale at the event for autographing.
