Derech Emunah Newsletter
Karen Treiger, Author, Delivers Moving Talk on How Her In-Laws Survived the Holocaust

By Rachel Eisenstein, 11th grade


Last week, Ms. Karen Treiger visited Derech Emunah to speak about her new book, “My Soul is Filled with Joy: A Holocaust Story.”


Ms. Treiger's presentation about her mother and father-in-laws' Holocaust experience intrigued me and my fellow students. We found it highly engaging and were eager to learn more. The speech was thorough and included many real-life stories. We appreciated hearing about the unusual and painful experiences of two Holocaust survivors with a direct connection to the Seward Park community.
