In Memoriam: Ursula Pawel

Ursula Pawel
Ursula Pawel, whose presentation of her book, My Child Is Back, in May, 2011 was one of the Book Club's most well attended and received meetings, passed away on May 30, 2015 at the age of 89. In her 80s when she spoke to the Book Club, Ms. Pawel captivated the audience with her personal story of surviving World War II - through selection points at Auschwitz and close encounters with certain death, to finally being reunited with her mother after the war's end.

The New Jersey World War II Book Club was honored to have Ms. Pawel speak and her lively presence, her witness to history, will be deeply missed.
