Auck. Heritage Festival Talk: Out of Poland , A Holocaust Story by Jenny Harrison

Talk: Out of Poland – A Holocaust Story

 Part of the AUCKLAND HERITAGE FESTIVAL 2017: A H F comes to Howick

Author Jenny Harrison shares the discovery, research and writing of her book  ‘Out of Poland: When the best revenge is to have survived’.  “For years the brown leather suitcase had lain hidden under the house. Someone had placed it there, away from prying eyes, behind the aching twist of floor joists and gurgling pipes. When it was finally opened it would prove to be a Pandora’s Box. The present-day Siegel family knew nothing of their relatives only that they had lived and died in Poland during WW2. It was only when the suitcase was opened they finally learnt their father’s dreadful secret. He had fled to New Zealand. But did he really escape? Or was he forever haunted by what he had left behind?” Stay for morning tea, meet Jenny and look around the museum galleries.

Wednesday 4th October 10.30 to 11.30am, doors open 10am

Stay after and met Jenny, plus wander the galleries within the museum.

Free entry. All welcome.
