CBJ hosts its first-ever live Zoom transatlantic interview between journalists Cindy Papish Gerber (CT) and Rosie Whitehouse (UK), specialist on Jewish life after the Holocaust and author of this critically acclaimed book. One summer's night in 1946, over 1000 European Jews waited silently on an Italian beach to board a secret ship. They had survived Auschwitz, hidden and fought in forests and endured death marches--now they were taking on the Royal Navy, running the British blockade of Palestine. Whitehouse follows in the footsteps of those secret passengers, uncovering their extraordinary stories-- some told for the first time. Contact CBJ for the Zoom link.
