A light lunch will be served.

The memoir follows Nawarskas’ challenging past, caused by the chaos and cruelty of World War II. When the war began, she and her family attempted to flee Lithuania, but found themselves caught by German soldiers. Nawarskas and her mother were separated from their father and struggled to survive in the brutal German camps. Her story darkens as her mother passes away when she was only seven, leaving her essentially as an orphan in the hands of German soldiers. She was moved from camp to camp for years before finally reuniting with her father in 1948.
