Go Fund Me Update

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Dear Readers:

I now have $705 in my Go Fund Me account and am cleaning out my office space to make a new space for Cherie’s book.  I plan to start after Thanksgiving, since I am going away this week for 10 days to be with family.

Yesterday we went to The Jewish Film Festival sponsored by Rutgers University and one of the movies was so difficult to watch about the Warsaw Ghetto that I had to leave.

I now realize why I want to help people write about their escape to the USA. I do not think I could live day-after-day with the Holocaust stories as depicted in the movie.

Below is an article about another Holocaust refugee made into a book called Rebuilt from Broken Glass, referring to Kristallnacht.  To read the text,  please  Google the title in the Philadelphia Inquirer from Friday, Nov. 2nd, 2018. The title is: Kristallnacht could come again.

Many thanx! ellensue



Go Fund Me Update (11/12/18)

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Dear Readers,

Donations for my book projects on two Holocaust refugees has reached the $500 mark. Thank you so much for those who have already donated.

I will be away for 10 days from Fri. 11/16 to Sunday 11/26, traveling in three different cities to see my son, my older daughter, and my stepson. Since I may not be posting often, I thought I would like to express my gratitude that I can start typing Cherie’s manuscript onto the computer so it can go to press as a PDF.

I will post date at least recipe and petition before I leave, so that there will be postings, but I may not be available to respond to comments on a regular basis.

Here is Cherie’s cover with her and her siblings in Lithuania and a link to Go Fund Me.

More updates as I can post them while away.
