IN RECOGNITION OF THE HEROES OF THE WARSAW GHETTO UPRISING, 1943
Join us in welcoming Sophie Miron's aunt, Dana Fast, and her daughter, Yvona in a book talk about her memoir, Good in the Midst of Evil, on the subject of her survival during the Holocaust.
Dana Fast was born as Lilka Miron in Warsaw in 1931 into an assimilated, educated family and is a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto (1940-42). After a daring operation she was smuggled out. She lived in hiding during the rest of the War.
Afterwards she graduated in Chemistry and left Poland for Israel and then immigrated with her family to the US in 1962. She worked in medical research for many years and is now retired and living in upstate New York.
She will join us on Zoom with her daughter on April 2nd at 5:30 pm.
