Join us as we welcome author Eva Moreimi to talk about her new book, Hidden Recipes: A Holocaust Memoir. Before the Second World War, Ica and Ernő each lived a comfortable life in Czechoslovakia. Their lives were shattered by Nazi cruelty, prejudice and devastation. Hidden Recipes is a memoir written by their daughter, Eva, and tells the story of their will and determination, and their struggles to survive. By sharing stories about their lives when food was abundant before the war, Ica secretly wrote down hundreds of recipes that she and her fellow inmates shared in the Nazi concentration camp. Ironically, many of the delectable recipes were written on the reverse sides of papers pilfered from the waste basket of a German munition factory, that carried information about ammunition that was manufactured and used to annihilate the Jews during the Holocaust.
