Since working with Cherie Goren on her memoir, A Time to Keep, I am much more aware of the anniversaries coming up for WWII, such as Normandy Beach and the liberation of Paris. Cherie’s book describes her idyllic life before Hitler invaded Lithuania and the family’s journey through Scandinavia and then England by boat to the USA, landing on Hitler’s 50th birthday, April 20th, 1939. This is another date I will always remember!
Here’s our picture (again) with Cherie holding her book and Krista and I on either side, celebrating the release of her book on AM\mazon in May.
So this year is Cherie’s 80th anniversary of arriving in America, safe and sound with her mother, father and three siblings. Her book is available on Amazon as a soft cover book ($14) and on kindle for $7.00.
Right before going to Providence, where I found another Holocaust refugee who has an out-of-print book, I spent time at Cherie’s apartment finalizing some of the questions I had. Here is a photo of me on the right with Cherie on the left after a good session on the book. We are tired but happy!
I hope to have another update ina few days…..
