<p>Did you miss Edith Cord's event on Wednesday, October 16 at the Rockville Campus? Don't worry, she's coming back, this time at the Germantown Campus!</p>
<p>Please join us for the third event of the Fall 2019 Frank Islam Athenaeum Symposia Speakers Series.</p>
<p>Born in Vienna in 1928, Edith Mayer Cord moved to Italy with her family to escape the rise of Nazism in Austria. In 1938, Italy passed the same anti-Jewish laws, similar to the Nuremberg laws, and the entire family was asked to leave. Unable to receive a visa for any country, Edith and her family entered France illegally in April 1939 where they received political asylum.</p>
<p><i>Finding Edith: Surviving the Holocaust in Plain Sight</i> is the coming-of-age story of a young Jewish girl chased in Europe during World War II. Like a great adventure story, the book describes the childhood and adolescence of a Viennese girl growing up against the backdrop of the Great Depression, the rise of Nazism, World War II, and the religious persecution of Jews throughout Europe. Edith was hunted in Western Europe and Vichy France, where she was hidden in plain sight, constantly afraid of discovery and denunciation.</p>
<p>This event fulfills the Multicultural Diversity Training requirement for MC employees.</p>
