The Ballerina of Auschwitz
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm

Dr. Edith Eva Eger lives in La Jolla, CA.  Edith Eva Eger was taken to Auschwitz when she was only 16.  She was forced to dance for Dr Mengele, the man who had ordered her parents’ death. She became a clinical psychologist specializing in treating patients suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.  Dr Eger works with the US military, victims of domestic abuse, and is a motivational public speaker at schools and universities.

“The Choice: Embrace the Possible” is a powerful, moving memoir—and a practical guide to healing—written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger, an eminent psychologist whose own experiences as a Holocaust survivor help her treat patients and allow them to escape the prisons of their own minds.
