Four Perfect Pebbles 
Marion Blumenthal Lazan

Marion Blumenthal Lazan will recount her devastating childhood: fleeing the Nazis, living in refugee, transit, and prison camps, such as Westerbork and Bergen-Belsen; and immigrating to the United States. Her story is one of horror and hardship, courage and hope, and the will to survive.

The Suitcase
