WASHINGTON - Sept. 3, 2019 - PRLog -- The event is hosted by The Polish American Arts Association of Washington, DC. The event begins with a brief business meeting, followed by Shawver's presentation. A reception will follow. The event is open to the public. Please confirm attendance by email to paaanewsletter@gmail.com.

Katrina Shawver will share highlights from her award-winning biography Henry – A Polish Swimmer's True Story of Friendship from Auschwitz to America, the true story of a Polish (Catholic) swimmer who survived three years in Auschwitz and Buchenwald and went on to live the American dream.

The presentation will include stories of writing her book, behind-the-scenes photos not included in the book, and touch on Polish history 1939-1945. This true story is both a witness to the Holocaust through Polish eyes and the story of how a Polish (Catholic) competitive swimmer survived Auschwitz and Buchenwald by his wits, humor, luck, and friends. The book fills a huge gap in historical accounts of Poles during WWII.

The book is listed as recommended reading on Poland by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Los Angeles. (https://losangeles.msz.gov.pl/en/news/books/)
