What a wonderful occasion to celebrate Eliane’s (not Elaine) special birthday. Even though Eliane and I just met (at one of my author talks), it feels as if we have known each other for a long time. A group of Eliane’s friends celebrated at a luncheon at her home, where I gave an author talk about my books, Sidonia’s Thread and Surviving Remnant.
The distinctive aspect of the attendees? Many were second generation of Holocaust survivors, as is Eliane—a great group of women, and some men too! Especially exciting was meeting Eliane’s mother, Gisela, a Holocaust survivor and subject of Gisela’s Legacy on YouTube!
Best of luck to Eliane and best wishes for a happy and fulfilling life!
