The story of her parents –- unlikely Holocaust and Atomic bomb World War II 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.
As two young Jewish prisoners of war(s) held captive in opposite sides of the world, they both remarkably survive to eventually meet and find enduring love against all odds.
Roslyn Franken's own survival of cancer at the age of 29 is credited to her resiliency inspired by her parents' strengths in overcoming their struggles.
