Speaker

Audiences & Topics

Heidi speaks to audiences of all kinds – young and old, students, community groups, communities of faith, book groups, and library patrons. She speaks about a variety of topics related to Tutti’s Promise and her mother’s family’s survival during the Holocaust including:

•How the family survived
•The research behind Tutti’s Promise
•The amazing discovery of the group behind the life-saving Paraguayan passport

•The importance of accepting all people to fight prejudice, bigotry, and hate

Heidi is available to speak to your group either in person (depending on COVID-19 safety) or virtually. She does not charge for her time – only for incurred travel expenses.

Heidi’s presentation … was terrific. She engaged the students with her story, and she shared details that made it come alive to them. The subject matter is not easy, but its importance is clear, and Heidi delivered a valuable lesson through the lens of her family’s experience. We wish we had more time with her.

Tony Scherer, Head, Upper School English Department, Renbrook School
