Ten Dollars in My Pocket: the American Education of a Holocaust Survivor
(2007-04-13)
(wfcr) - Elizabeth Trahan was one of only a few thousand Jews to avoid being captured by the Nazis in wartime Vienna. In 1947, as a teenager she boarded a ship bound for the United States. The first section of audio here is part of a letter she wrote to a friend describing her rough journey to New York. The letter is among many entries collected in Trahan's new memoir -- "Ten Dollars in My Pocket: the American Education of a Holocaust Survivor. The title comes from some of her first moments in America. Elizabeth Welt Trahan will be reading Wednesday April 18, at a meeting of Valley Jewish Seniors at Congregation B'nai Israel in Northampton.
