Author of ‘Pillar of Salt’ to speak at HMH – Jewish Herald-Voice

Posted By on May 10, 2022

Anna Eisen, author of Pillar of Salt, will be the guest speaker of Friends of the Boniuk Library at Holocaust Museum Houston on Wednesday, May 11, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Eisen recently published her fathers and familys story.

In 1992, Eisen and I were selected by the Steven Spielberg Shoah Foundation to go to Chicago and assist in learning and launching the interview process for Holocaust survivors.

Anna revealed to me that her parents were Holocaust survivors and had never spoken about their early life in Europe and being sent to concentration camps. Their history was always cloaked in secrecy in her family. It took Eisen many years to understand her fathers deeply hidden and personal story of survival, grit and resilience.

With my friends strength, faith, devotion and drive, together, we helped to build a thriving Jewish community in Arlington, Texas. Eisen also became a founding member of Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville Texas.

Carol Pock is a second-generation Holocaust survivor and resides in Houston.
