Experience the Holocaust through the eyes of a young girl

At the tender age of fifteen, Catherine Shvets wrote about the Shoah through the memories of her survivor grandmother. She addressed the critical actions of nameless rescuers who saved a little girl, the theme of Shvets’s recent oeuvre, « Hitler et la fillette.»

Catherine Shvets, born in Quebec of Russian Jewish heritage, is twenty-one years old and a second-year student in philosophy of education at McGill University.

Sonia Sarah Lipsyc interviews Catherine Shvets about her book “Hitler et la fillette.” Shvets’ book brings us into the moving experience of the holocaust through the eyes of a young girl.
