All the Horrors of War: A Jewish Girl, a British Doctor, and the Liberation of Bergen-Belsen

Bernice Lerner

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

7:00 pm ET / 4:00 pm PT

It has been 77 years since World War II ended, but it is our responsibility to ensure their stories and legacies live on. Join Reading Series host Steven Shalowitz with author Bernice Lerner as we recognize Yom Hashoah and share the remarkable stories of Rachel Genuth, a poor Jewish teenager from the Hungarian provinces, and Hugh Llewelyn Glyn Hughes, a high-ranking military doctor in the British Second Army, who converge in Bergen-Belsen, where the girl fights for her life and the doctor struggles to save thousands on the brink of death. Lerner, Rachel's daughter, has special insight into the torment her mother suffered. The first book to pair the story of a Holocaust victim with that of a liberator, All the Horrors of War compels readers to consider the full, complex humanity of both.
