Judy Stone, the daughter of Hungarian survivors of Auschwitz and Dachau, will speak about her family July 7.

Camden — The Camden Public Library welcomes Dr. Judy Stone, the daughter of Hungarian survivors of Auschwitz and Dachau, for an online talk about her new book "Resilience," Tuesday, July 7, at 6 p.m. Stone’s story depicts her family’s strength during some of the most horrific events of the 20th century. This presentation will occur via the Zoom platform. Email jpierce@librarycamden.org to request a link to attend.

“Resilience: One Family’s Story of Hope and Triumph over Evil” is the fulfillment of a daughter’s promise to her mother to ensure that her family’s remarkable story was preserved and passed on. The story is based on hours of interviews with family members, extensive historical research and travels back to eastern Hungary—the city of Debrecen and the countryside—where her parents and aunts and uncles grew up. Stone presents a biography of two intertwined families, the Ehrenfelds and the Glattsteins, who survived the attempted annihilation of the Jews. In Resilience, Stone reveals how her family survived these monstrous times and slowly rebuilt their lives, focusing on their inner strength and the good people they found.

Stone is an infectious diseases physician, a Forbes Pharma and Healthcare contributor and the author of a nationally established textbook, “Conducting Clinical Research: A Practical Guide for Physicians, Nurses, Study Coordinators, and Investigators.” Through telling her family’s story, she hopes to teach tolerance and contribute to making the world a better, more peaceful, and more just place. Dr. Stone will donate the net profits from this book to organizations that promote Holocaust education.
