Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Nashville author, Sharon Cameron, for her new book, The Light in Hidden Places. She will be in conversation with Ed Burzminski (son of Stefania Podgorska and one of the Jews she saved). Their conversation will be moderated by Julie Greenberg, Education Director of Congregation Micah.
About the Book
Sixteen-year-old Catholic Stefania Podgâorska has worked in the Diamant family's grocery store for four years, even falling in love with one of their sons, Izio; but when the Nazis came to Przemyâsl, Poland, the Jewish Diamants are forced into the ghetto (and worse) but Izio's brother Max manages to escape, and Stefania embarks on a dangerous course--protecting thirteen Jews in her attic, caring for her younger sister, Helena, and keeping everything secret from the two Nazi officers who are living in her house.
