==============================
For those of you who would like to read more about Janet Applefield's history, you can consult Janet's personal website and her biography on Facing History and Ourselves webpage. The most recent chapter in Janet's relationship with Poland is described in the article in the Boston Globe: her meeting with Karolina Panz, a scholar and activist from Nowy Targ, and Janet's visits to Poland. Karolina published an academic paper on the issue of post-war anti-Jewish violence in Podhale region that Janet and other survivors were exposed to. You can also refer to Lena Kuchler-Silberman's book My Hundred Children describing her role in taking care of Jewish orphans after the Second World War.

Dear Mark,

I would like to remind you of tomorrow's meeting with Janet Applefield, a Holocaust Survivor born in Krakow, Poland, and a clinical social worker and counselor living in the United States. On the eve of Yom HaShoah, we want to embrace the power of personal stories and create a space for them to reverberate. We will be honored to be able to hear Janet Applefield's story and reflections on this special Zoom in on the Forum session. 
 
Join us tomorrow, on  Tuesday April 6th, at 10 am Pacific, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern, 7 pm Warsaw, 8 pm Tel-Aviv time

I hope you will be with us tomorrow to listen to Janet's personal history: her childhood years in Nowy Targ and Krakow, her family's fate after the outbreak of the Second World War, surviving the occupation with a Polish Catholic family and leaving post-war Poland for the States in 1947. Janet Applefield's powerful biography is an impactful lesson in dignity, humanity, and resilience in the face of evil. 

Yours,
Olga

Olga Kaczmarek
