P’nina Seplowitz Shares Her Grandmother’s Story With TABC Seniors

TABC’s twelfth grade Holocaust Studies class welcomed their faculty member P’nina Seplowitz to speak about her book “White Angel,” the personal memoir of her grandmother who survived the Holocaust. Seplowitz discussed her grandmother’s experience growing up in Kremenitz, Poland, before the war and shared with students the unique journey of her life. The memoir depicts the plight of a woman who was separated from her family during World War II, was imprisoned, beaten, starved and tortured and finally escaped to freedom. This story is told using her own words from stories, essays and poetry translated from Yiddish and Polish. Seplowitz discussed the unique nature of the text and how it serves as a guide through the different periods of her own life. After the presentation, students had an opportunity to ask questions and receive signed books.
