"Recipes Remembered" by June Feiss Hersh.

When Florence Tabrys was 14 years old, Nazis occupied her small hometown of Szydlowiec, Poland. Three years later, she and her younger sister were sent to a munitions factory. They were later shipped from concentration camp to concentration camp before they were eventually liberated from Bergen Belsen in 1945. They never again saw their parents or their five other siblings.

Tabrys doesn’t often talk about her experiences during the Holocaust, but she spoke to June Feiss Hersh about her memories for the 2011 book “Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival.”
