Center for Psychological Studies to Host Presentation by WWII & Nazi Occupation Survivor, April 2

Just when you think you’ve heard every conceivable story from World War II comes the tale of Sipora Groen. Her experiences are detailed in a 2012 book, Jew Face, which chronicles her escape from capture in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam and how one man’s refusal to let her give up resulted in a life well lived.

To share her experiences with today’s generation and to keep the issue of genocide from fading into history, Groen will be sharing her story at a presentation scheduled from 12-2 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 at NSU’s Carl DeSantis Building, 3301 College Ave., Davie (NSU’s Main Campus.) After the formal presentation from 12-1 p.m., Groen will participate in a Q&A session with the audience and will be available for media interviews.

As April is home to both Holocaust Remembrance Day (Mon., April 28) and the National Holocaust Remembrance Week (April 27-May 4, 2014) Groen’s presentation is very timely. Her presentation is FREE and open to the public. Registration is required as space is limited. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP via email to groentalk@gmail.com or call 954-262-5808.

The presentation is made possible by Vincent Van Hasselt, Ph.D., clinical director of NSU’s Family Violence Program, Steven Gold, Ph.D., clinical director of NSU’s Trauma Resolution Integration Program (TRIP) and the NSU’s Jewish Psychological Student Association, which is providing light snacks and refreshments for the event.
