GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP – The Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at the University of Stockton will hold a Zoom book launch at 11 a.m. on Sunday, December 5 for the book “Love With No Tomorrow: Tales of Romance during the Holocaust” by Mindelle Pierce.
Pierce is the daughter of Jack and Rose Najman who lived in Margate and were Holocaust survivors from Eastern Europe. A resident of Atlantic County, Pierce is a member of the executive committee of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at the University of Stockton.
The book features the love stories of 27 couples who met before or during the Holocaust and whose love helped them survive to tell their stories. The book features several area couples, including the Najmans, Ernest and Sara Paul from Atlantic City, and Daniel and Lucyna Berkowicz from Vineland. It also includes two couples linked to the Stockton Holocaust Centre, Jack and Ina Soep Pollack and Joseph and Rebecca Bau.
Dr. Michael Berenbaum, who wrote the foreword to the book, will moderate the discussion. He is a former Ida E. King Distinguished Visiting Professor of Holocaust Studies at Stockton and an internationally renowned Holocaust scholar, author, and educator.
