It all began when Kathy’s elementary school teacher said, “Why don’t you write that story down?” Forty years and 30 books later, that’s exactly what Kathy is still trying to do – write the story. Her many books focus on the Second World War and the Holocaust, and include The Secret of Gabi’s Dresser, Hiding Edith, To Look a Nazi in the Eye, Broken Strings, Under the Iron Bridge, and Restitution.
A winner of the Jewish Book Award (Canada and the U.S.), and the Yad Vashem Award for Children’s Holocaust Literature (Israel), Kathy has written unforgettable stories inspired by real events. She is published in 20 countries, and travels the world speaking to young people in schools and libraries about the importance of the Holocaust and keeping its memory alive. Kathy lives in Toronto and teaches writing at the University of Toronto, (Continuing Studies). She lectures in universities about teaching sensitive material to young people. She dreams of singing and dancing but has decided to leave that to her talented kids.
