Author Irene Levin Berman tells an important and, for most Americans, unknown story about the destiny of Norway's tiny Jewish population during World War II.

It is a story of the effort and extent to which the Nazi war machine would reach out in its attempt to totally annihilate the Jewish people - extending its evil reach even into a nation with just 2,000 Jews.

Berman will share that story with the public at 2 p.m. Sunday at the York Jewish Community Ccnter, 2000 Hollywood Drive, at a program co-sponsored by the Sons of Norway. Admission is $5 and light refreshments will be served.

The Norway native was just 4 years old when her family fled their nation. She writes of her experiences in "We Are Going to Pick Potatoes: Norway and the Holocaust, The Untold Story."

Books will be available for purchase at the event or may be ordered in advance at www.amazon.com.
