She received a degree in chemistry from Queens College of the City University of New York, and has done graduate studies in biochemistry. Before her retirement she worked for 38 years in medical research and clinical work. She is the author of several books on the Holocaust, including the story of her survival, I Am a Star, and is the recipient of numerous awards for her books and her work teaching tolerance and human rights.
The Norman Cohn Family Lecture Series is made possible by the ongoing support of Norman Cohn, a native of Waterloo and a graduate of UNI.
