"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

Angel of Losses

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is proud to be hosting a book reading and signing with Northeast Philly's own Stephanie Feldman. Stephanie will be reading from her debut novel, The Angel of Losses (which of course has a Holocaust component), answering questions about how she crafted the book, and signing copies for those who wish to purchase it. All profits from books sold at this event go to support the mission of the Holocaust Awareness Museum.
