Born at the start of WW II in Warsaw, Poland, Eva survived the war by a series of miraculous events involving luck, coincidence and the courage and faith of several individuals, both family members and virtual strangers. She immigrated to Canada with her family in 1949 where she grew up "practically Canadian" with the history of the Holocaust always there in the background. She was educated at Sir George Williams University and Concordia, spending the major part of her work life in education and educational administration. Eva has taught children and adults in a variety of settings from pre-school centres and schools to Vanier College and Concordia University, and was Principal of one branch of Jewish Peoples' and Peretz Schools. She has also led workshops on a range of topics dealing with human development and education. In this talk, Eva will present the film Hidden Children, Unknown Heroes (2009).
