Join us on Thursday, November 7 at 7:00 PM as Karen Treiger discusses her new book "My Soul is Filled with Joy: A Holocaust Story." 

Sam Goldberg escaped the Treblinka Death Camp during the prisoner revolt on August 2, 1943. Running to the woods, he met Esther, who was hiding there. For another year until liberation, they hid together in barns and in a pit in the forest. The author, married to Sam and Esther's son, uncovers details of their wartime experiences and travels to Poland to meet the families of the Righteous Gentiles who helped them survive. The dead of Poland speak loudly from the ashes, but the living find new voices. The author listens to these voices and finds her own in the process.
