Join EPHM for our book club featuring The Red Handkerchief a Holocaust Memoir with a special guest Maria Spronk- Hughes. The book is available at the EPHM bookstore.

At age 19, Yvonne's mother, Maria Spronk-Hughes, joined a Resistance group in Amsterdam, Holland and performed acts of sabotage against the Nazis. At age 22, she was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to a Nazi prison and then to Vught Concentration Camp. In 1944, she was put on trial by the Nazis for sabotage. "The Red Handkerchief" is based on her life experience.

Maria Spronk- Hughes will be available afterwards to sign books.
