Polish.Doctor.Nazi.CampsAuthor Barbara Rylko-Bauer will be joining us to discuss her 2015 Michigan Notable book A Polish Doctor in the Nazi Camps:  My Mother’s Memories of Imprisonment, Immigration and a Life Remade. 

Rylko-Bauer’s mother endured 3 Nazi concentration camps as a prisoner-doctor during World War II.  She then struggled to rebuild her life, first as a refugee doctor in Germany and later as an immigrant to the U.S.  Rylko-Bauer has produced a fascinating narrative that, not only tells her mother’s story, but also demonstrates how powerful historical forces impact individual lives.  Her writing is enriched with personal photographs, letters, archival documents and maps that combine to help us better understand World War II, the Holocaust and the struggle of immigrants in the aftermath of these tragic events.

This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library. Registration is required for this event. Books will be available for sale and signing. Please call 586.574.4564 to register.
