Description
Boone County Public Library is honored to present Dr. Henry Fenichel at the Main Library on Tuesday, April 28, at 7 p.m. when he speaks about his experience of growing up in the Westerbrook and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps during WWII.
Dr. Fenichel was born in the Netherlands and lived a self-described "happy childhood." Everything changed when the Nazis invaded in 1940. At the age of six, he and his mother were sent to the Westerbork detention camp, which served as a transit camp for over 107,000 Jews before they were deported to extermination camps. Only 5,200 of the people who passed through Westerbork survived.

From there, Dr. Fenichel and his mother were transported to Bergen-Belsen camp in Germany and were later exchanged for German civilians held abroad. He then escaped to Palestine where he witnessed the creation of the state of Isreal and the beginning of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict that continues today. Eventually, he made his way to the United States where he settled down in a suburb of Cincinnati.

Dr. Fenichel, who did not speak openly about his experiences until the early 1990's, is now sharing his life story with hundreds of people in the community each year, including young school children. The opening of the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C, prompted Dr. Fenichel to break his silence on the stories of his past. At time of the museum opening, each community around the country looked for a local survivor to represent their region, and Dr. Fenichel was interviewed and selected by the Cincinnati Enquirer to represent survivors living in Cincinnati.

Secret Disco Revolution
Review
This one really took me back. It felt authentic, and my only criticism is that the light emitted by the tv didn't illuminate the mirror ball hanging from from my ceiling. I think I saw myself sparkling in the goldmine of rarely seen stock footage.  "Check it Out"

Review
I listened to the book on CD version of this book and enjoyed it immensely. I thought the narrator did a good job of portraying Cath and the other characters in the book. I enjoyed the set-up of the book, going back and forth between Cath's story and the Simon Snow (Harry Potter rip-off) excerpts. I thought it ended a little abruptly, but was still satisfying.   "Check it Out"
