Hiding in the Spotlight addendum

by Greg Dawson
New York, Pegasus Books, 2009
288 Pages     Memoir

 The book Hiding in the Spotlight, which I reviewed in 2010, tells the story of Zhanna Arshanskaya Dawson, who survived the Holocaust by playing the piano for the Nazis. She and her sister were child prodigies, and her son wrote the story of her remarkable life, Hiding in the Spotlight.

Yesterday (May 12) CNN did a story about Zhanna and about the honorary doctorate she received this week from Oglethorpe University. She was selected for the honor because of "her indomitable spirit, courage, honesty, and sense of purpose."

The book is very honest and moving. Check out my thoughts here.
