Endorsement from Dr. Michael Berenbaum

Two Regimes is a powerful but ever so painful memoir of a woman who lived through Stalin’s famine in the Ukraine and witnessed Hitler’s Final Solution. Twice cursed by history, we are twice blessed with Teodora Verbitskaya’s commitment to memory and the talent of her daughter Nadia’s haunting sketches.”

Endorsement from Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff

“As a Holocaust Educator and consultant as well as a Jewish Child Survivor of The Holocaust of 1933-1945, I am frequently asked to review curriculum and projects meant for Educational use on the subject of the Holocaust. When I first met with Ms. Kelly Bowen, one of the owners and co-editors of the exhibit and book “Two Regimes”, I was not aware of this very interesting piece of Holocaust history. After meeting with Ms. Bowen numerous times and researching the “Two Regimes” exhibit and the history, I am impressed enough with the work done that I do wish to add my name in recommending and supporting this very worthwhile project for classroom use and for museum exhibits. Both the exhibit and the book and curriculum lessons of “Two Regimes” will greatly assist teachers in meeting the mandate to teach the Nazi Holocaust of 1933-1945. I highly recommend this very worthy project.”

Endorsement from Dr. Karen Glendenning

“The book is beautiful and a real contribution. So many people don’t look at holocaust material because it is so horrific and gruesome. This is a way to educate even young children with something beautiful and powerful but with the message still intact. It seemed to flow evenly with the artwork thoughtfully placed. The narrative in first person from an observer makes it a unique perspective from a generation that is sadly disappearing. It is so wonderful that you were able to put this outstanding contribution together.”
