"An Intimate Conversation with Holocaust Survivor Renee Fink" 

​October 28, 2020

Renee Fink was born in the Netherlands two years before the start of World War II. At the age of four, she was taken from her home to a Catholic family she had never met. Renee remained there until the war ended in 1945. She never saw her birth parents again. They were betrayed and died in a concentration camp. Renee came to the United States in 1948.
