Join us in our Yuuth Room to discuss Orphan 8 by Kim van Alkemade. “A stunning debut novel of historical fiction set in the forgotten world of New York City’s Jewish orphanages.” It is a story of a young woman, Rachel, who becomes a nurse and then meets the doctor who performed dangerous medical experiments on her as a child in a Jewish orphanage. In 1919 medical experimentation on children in orphanages was a common practice. Through the compelling narrative story of her life we come to know Rachel and the choice she must make: forgiveness or revenge. Kim will be with us for the discussion.
