Author Orlene Allen Gallops, will discuss her book Hiding in Plain Sight.
"Hiding In Plain Sight" is Orlene Allen Gallop's personal account of uncovering her Jewish heritage and the tragic past of her family, shrouded in mystery for decades. Her story begins with the discovery of her parents' marriage certificate, signed by a Rabbi in 1949. Finding out that her parents were Jewish was only one revelation; their families' fate was another. Orlene's research spanned five years in a relentless search for answers, taking her around the globe to places and meeting people she never could have imagined. The book weaves together the fabric and detail of the research facts with an extraordinary story of her family's experience with the very worst of human despair and ultimately the joy of two people who celebrated life.
