Orthodox Forum of HP/Edison to Host Talk by Miriam Dobin, Feb. 11

The Orthodox Forum of Edison/ Highland Park will present Miriam Dobin, author of “I am Because of You,” who will speak about her book on Saturday, February 11, at 8 p.m. at Congregation Etz Ahaim in Highland Park.

Dobin was born when her mother, Olga, was 10 weeks shy of 48 and her father, Morris, was 56. When she was a young child, her mother fell ill. Her aunt and uncle took her in and raised her as if she were their own.

Upon the death of her beloved aunt, Miriam knew the time had come to write her family history. Her task took her deep into the family records and halfway around the world to the places where her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins lived before they were imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps and where almost all of them were killed.
