Meant to Be powerful presentation by author Roslyn franken

Discover the amazing true story of Roslyn's parents’ survival and triumph as two unlikely Holocaust and Atomic Bomb survivors

Roslyn’s mother, Sonja Franken, was in the concentration camps of Nazi Europe surviving Auschwitz, and her father, John Franken, was a prisoner of war in Japan surviving the Nagasaki atomic bombing.

unforgettable...moving...powerful storytelling...simply amazing...the best program I've ever heard...

“It was an absolute pleasure to have Roslyn at The Ravines Retirement Residence & Senior Suites on December 1st, 2016. It is very easy to say that all of our residents and visitors who attended were extraordinarily moved by the story that she had to tell, as well as the positive energy that she brought forth. Despite all of the heartache and despair that her parents and then herself have gone through, she helped us all realize that there is ALWAYS hope and that maybe just maybe our problems that we face today aren’t as rough as we think they are. She kept everyone spellbound throughout her story and It was clear that it touched everyone in different ways… I want to express our profound appreciation for helping us understand 'all of the little miracles that life has to offer' I have had a number of Ravines Residents approach me to tell me how much they enjoyed Roslyn’s presentation and how well spoken they thought she was. Roslyn, I am extremely grateful that our paths crossed & I certainly hope that they do again. You & your family are truly an inspiration and the whole world deserves to hear your story.” Jessica Dube- Ravines Recreation Manager
