Musician Rosemary Schonfeld is 2nd Generation Holocaust and grew up in Canada unaware that her father was Jewish. Most
of his family was murdered in the Holocaust. After his death, she traced his former sister in-law who survived Auschwitz, her Aunt Relly, and has written a book about her journey, giving a contemporary narrative about the Holocaust. The book is titled
‘Finding Relly – My Family, the Holocaust, and me’.
Rosemary will elaborate on how she is using the book as an educational tool in raising awareness about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance, both in schools and for adults. There will be time for questions and discussion.
