Holocaust Survivors: The Secret of How One Family Escaped the Nazi Death Camps

    In her new novel, first time author Georgia Hunter tells the story of her own family’s remarkable survival of the Holocaust. Though the book, titled “We Were The Lucky Ones” is considered historical fiction, it is largely based on the true story of 22 members of the Kurc family; Polish Jews of all ages who managed to evade capture by the Nazis. Hunter sits down with host Paul Schankman for a First Person, One on One discussion of her best selling book which retells a story she only learned years after all but one of the survivors had passed away.
