On this Father’s Day program, Dr. Shulamit Reinharz tells her father’s story of resistance and survival during the Holocaust. Her stirring new book, Hiding in Holland: A Resistance Memoir, combines the voices of a father who survived the Holocaust and a daughter who explains the historical context of his experiences. Running through the story is a commitment to resistance, from the father’s religious youth in Germany to his embrace of Labor Zionism, his incarceration in Buchenwald and his flight to freedom in Holland. This uplifting story of hope will focus not only on history but also on life lessons passed from one generation to the next.
