Witness to Horror

Author Eycke Strickland speaks at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, at Congregation Olympic B’nai Shalom about her book, “Eyes Are Watching, Ears Are Listening: Growing Up in Nazi Germany, 1933-1946.” The talk will be at the Olympic Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 73 Howe Road, off Barr Road in Agnew.

The memoir recounts her discovery of her father’s efforts to save his Jewish workers and their families, as her mother protected the family from Gestapo officials and spies. Her father later was honored by Israel for helping rescue Jews from the Holocaust.

Strickland’s book is written from the point of view of a young girl becoming a teenager. In addition to recounting the stories of her parents, she describes the horror she and her siblings witnessed in their own community.
