A Special Anniversary

This week marks the 20th anniversary since journalist and author Judie Oron finally tracked down a young Ethiopian Jewish girl--whose younger sister Judie had adopted in Israel a few years earlier--and paid to free her from the family who was using her as an unpaid servant. Judie then brought the young woman to be reunited with her sister and family in Israel, and many years later wrote a book, Cry of the Giraffe, based on this heartbreaking true story. As part of Black History Month, Judie was interviewed about this emotional experience on Daytime TV: click here to watch the interview on the Rogers website.

Cry of the Giraffe is available in e-book format from Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and other e-retailers.
