Our February speaker is Ruth Rotkowitz. Ruth is the daughter of Holocaust survivors and has
become an expert on inherited trauma. She holds a B.A. and M.A. in English. In New Jersey, she taught writing at two
community colleges. In New York, Ruth taught English at one of the city’s specialized high schools.

After moving to Arizona, she joined the Phoenix Holocaust Association, an organization dedicated to preserving the Shoah
memory. As a representative of the organization, she gives talks throughout the Phoenix area on Holocaust-related books
and programs.

Ruth is the author of two novels, Escaping the Whale and the prequel, The Whale Surfaces. The protagonist of Escaping the
Whale, in addition to struggling with inherited trauma, must also deal with the issues facing her as a woman.
Guests are welcome with a $5.00 fee at the door.
RSVPs are required so that we will have enough chairs:
