A Family Story Through and Beyond the Holocaust: Susan recounts the remarkable story of her 18-year search for the truth of what happened to her Viennese Jewish family during the Second World War. She also digs deep into her family’s history, a journey taking her back 200 years and across four continents, and explores the impact of the Holocaust on subsequent generations. Join her on this journey, made all the more poignant, as 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, where several members of her family perished.
