The remarkable story of one boy's survival in a protected house in Hungary and the reuniting of survivors and family members 70 years after the war, presented by author and educator Paul Regelbrugge.
Paul Regelbrugge, a teacher in Spokane, WA at the time, asked survivor Robert Holczer to come and speak to his 6th grade class. His students were enthralled by the unique story of Robert and the motivations of his rescuer. Paul and Robert became friends over the last decade of Robert's life and Paul became one of the few people trusted to record Robert's story.
From these stories and interviews comes Paul's first book, and one of the first books on this remarkable story of the rescue of 400 Jews in the middle of Budapest, Hungary: The Yellow Star House. Books will be for sale at the event for $13.50 for members/$15 non-members.
