Frieda demonstrates a devotion to love and the wisdom of a life well-lived.
A psychotherapist, writer and poet, Ms. Ferrick shares about her parents’ survival from a ghetto in Lodz, the 2nd largest Jewish community in prewar Poland, to becoming a wife, mother and grandmother in the U.S. On her journey, she continues to find meaning and beauty in the world that was once charred and marred by the brutalities of WWII.
“I’m a miracle child. My life is a gift, born of parents meant for death.”
Ms. Ferrick’s gratitude for life is woven through her poetry and stories, leaving the reader both humbled and in awe. This is truly a must-read.
