I Am Sasha, by Anita Selzer, is the extraordinary story of one boy’s survival of the Holocaust, and his mother’s incredible courage.
In 1942 in German-occupied Poland, Nazi soldiers were ordering young boys to pull down their trousers to determine who was Jewish. One mother takes an ingenious step to avoid suspicion, training her teenage son to be a girl through the way he dressed, his voice, hairstyle and manners. Together they faced incredible odds as their journey took them across occupied Europe.
Anita Selzer will be in conversation with Museum Education Officer Breann Fallon.
