Joanne Carras, author of the Holocaust Survivors Cookbook and Miracles & Meals, joined Alberto Sed, survivor of the Holocaust in a brunch organized by Mrs. Rivkie Lazar and Sahar Fadlun.
The conference room was beautifully setup with flowers and cakes adorned with placards of stories from the cookbook related to the cakes baked.
Mr. Sed recounted his post-war story and how his book “I was a number” came to be after he never spoke to anybody about the horrors he had to endure during the WWII. Following Mrs. Carras related the story of how her cookbook came to be, although her speech was in English, an italian translation was provided on the background screen.
At the conclusion of her speech all the cookbooks were sold to the participants.
