In Our Voices, a memoir from local survivors

In Our Voices Local Holocaust survivors Cipora Katz, Ralph Rehbock, Margie Oppenheimer, Sia Hertsberg, Fela Dogadko, Peter Gershanov, Joe Koenig and Janine Oberrotman worked for 18 months together to create this one of a kind book.

In Our Voices looks at the Holocaust from the perspectives of eight survivors. Their stories stretch from Uzbekistan to Paris, from Israel to the United States – and each of these survivors ended up in Skokie, Illinois. This writing workshop, a group of excited and nervous strangers, soon became something unexpected. These works form a portrait of Europe during the war – and paint a picture of what life was like after.
