Yom HaShoah Commemoration

Jeannette was born in Szcezin, Poland to Holocaust survivors from Wlodawa. Her family emigrated to Venezuela, settling in Maracaibo. As a Second-Generation Holocaust Survivor, her parents’ trauma was always present in her life and she felt the need to understand what happened to the family she never had. From 2013 to 2018 she was a Research Scholar at Florida Atlantic University, focusing on Holocaust studies. As a result, she wrote On Sunny Days We Sang, which is the author’s first full length work, telling the story of her parents’ survival in Nazi-occupied Poland during the Second World War.
