Holocaust's Hidden Children

The hidden children of the Holocaust was a story that author Jennifer Rosner had not heard about. In her latest novel ONCE WE WERE HOME, she tells their story. Throughout her journey, she became captivated by the intricacies of finding a sense of belonging and identity. Jennifer encountered a woman who worked on a post-WW2 mission to recover Jewish orphans hidden in Christian settings for safety. Jennifer’s exploration of this lesser-known aspect of history highlights the moral complexities of displacing children who had already endured the trauma of losing their original families.

Jennifer is the author of The Yellow Bird Sings, the memoir If a Tree Falls: A Family’s Quest to Hear and Be Heard, and the children’s book, The Mitten String. In addition to writing, Jennifer taught philosophy. She earned her B.A. from Columbia University and her Ph. D. from Stanford University.
