This is an unusual Blog. It is a tribute to Dr. Lautman’s mother, Bertha Berkowitz Lautman, of blessed memory. She was a survivor of the Holocaust and one of the 999 young women that were part of the first official transport to Auchwitz.
In her honor, we would like to recommend a book that was recently published on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. The book is called The 999, by Heather Dune Macadam and it shares the experiences of one of the survivors. There is also a documentary of the same name.
Warning: The depictions in the book and images in the documentary are disturbing. Please read/watch at your discretion. However, keep in mind that this is a true story.
At this time in our own country’s history we need to end hate.
