Podcast Episode #106 – Bernice Lerner
This week we interview Bernice Lerner, a senior scholar at Boston University’s Center for Character and Social Responsibility. Her latest book is a dual biography of a high-ranking British military doctor during World War II, and Lerner’s mother, Rachel Genuth, a poor Jewish teenager from the Hungarian provinces and Holocaust survivor. The book, All the Horrors of War: A Jewish Girl, a British Doctor, and the Liberation of Bergen-Belsen, was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in April 2020. Lerner also authored The Triumph of Wounded Souls: Seven Holocaust Survivors’ Lives. Bernice Lerner was interviewed by fellow biographer and BIO member Kitty Kelley.
