“A Whisper Across Time” is the story of one family’s experiences in the Holocaust. Olga Campbell tells a personal and moving story through prose, art and poetry, creating a multi-dimensional snapshot of family losses and intergenerational trauma. This is a story of remembering and healing. It is also a cautionary tale asking the reader to look at what is happening in the world today. Part memoir, part poetry, “A Whisper Across Time” will make you stop, feel and reflect.
Olga Campbell’s art includes photography, sculpture, mixed media painting, and digital photocollage. She is also the author of “Graffiti Alphabet.”
