Featuring Distinguished Speaker Jeffrey Gingold Author of Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy

Jeffrey is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning author. He has been a guest on The Montel Williams Show, NPR, numerous webcasts and national talk radio shows. Jeffrey is a published freelance writer and has authored and been interviewed for numerous articles in U.S and international publications. In 2014 his first book was translated into Polish and last year, his second book was released in Dutch.

Based upon recordings and interviews with his grandmother and father, Jeffrey's new book, Tunnel, Smuggle, Collect: A Holocaust Boy, has also received world-wide acclaim. Recently, it received the 2016 Finalist Midwest Independent Publishing Book Award and Jeffrey also received an award from the Jewish War Veterans for his "dedication to telling the stories of history."

Jeffrey shares his father's epic survival as a young boy in the Warsaw Ghetto. The gripping true story holds nothing back, and is viewed as a "significant contribution to the corpus of second-generation (Holocaust) literature."

Jeffrey enjoys family time with his wife, Terri, and their two bright and beautiful daughters, Lauren and Meredith.
