On this Edit, Anna talks to Elke Babicki, author of “Identity: From Holocaust to Home.” Elke’s book and personal teachings follow the lives of her grandfather, Johann, and her father, Alex, who were both Nazi Concentration Camp survivors. Her father, Alex, survived the camps by hiding under a pile of dead bodies in order to escape what would have been his final train to the gas chamber at the close of WWII. This fascinating conversation explores themes of strength, integrity, resilience and ambition.

About the Host:

Anna was born with a deep fascination for letters - a fascination that deepened when she discovered those letters could turn into words, those words into sentences and those sentences into stories. Not surprisingly, Anna graduated from The University of Victoria, with a Degree in both English and Gender Studies, fuelling her eventual mission to put the power of words back into the hands of women.

Despite multiple other certifications along the way, including one with world-renowned author and personal transformation pioneer, Deepak Chopra, it was ultimately her personal battle with post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety that became the catalyst for the work she does now, as she helps pave the way for others to live with vulnerability and courage whether they are online, offline or on stage.
