READER COMMENTS From our 94 Maidens Facebook Page:
Dr. J. Kerner – An incredible read…you don’t have to be Jewish to have it kick you in the ass!
Berger – Just finished the book….still choked up…
Garfield – Enjoyed 94 Maidens much better than A Casual Vacancy!
Wexler – Well I just finished the book and I have 2 words “Thank You!” Rhonda Fink-Whitman.
Delaney – I’ve read NUMEROUS Holocaust books….this one hits home with me….Thank you for sharing your story. My mind is reeling.
Hymson – LOVED it!
Jan – Borrowed this from a friend, then ordered one to keep for myself. I could not put the book down. Gripping, hearstopping, tragic accounting of life and death under the Nazis. The randomness of who survived and who was slated for extermination gives the reader much to contemplate. One of the best recent books on the Holocaust. A must read and a must share book.
Morton – Finished 94 Maidens this morning; GREAT book!
Grossman – Rhonda, I have already read 100 pages between the train and lunch and love it. I am very wrapped up into the characters. I can’t wait to continue later on. A wonderful story indeed.
Kraiman – Rhonda…I just finished it too. Couldn’t put it down. What a great read, though painful at times. We must never forget and we must teach our children to never forget too. Thank you!!!

Dacko – Your book was awesome. It made me sad, mad and happy at the same time. I am going to read it again.
Moore – Sitting here in Panera reading the book. Had to take a break for fear I would just start bawling in the restaurant. These rough paper napkins do not make good tissues to wipe away tears!
I. Cullman – Just Finished reading 94 Maidens by Rhonda Fink-Whitman. It is a must read for everyone. I read it in 3 days and could not put it down. The holocaust victims, /and survivors from this book will always live in my heart. Well, done Rhonda!
Chef J. Kelly – I finished reading your book this morning. I could not put it down, I even shirked my Christmas tree decorating work. I cried! Thanks for sharing your family story with the world.
Dratch – Just finished your book. Spent the last two days reading non stop. What a sad, inspiring, powerful story. I can’t wait to hear you speak about it. Thank you for sharing or should I say. “Danke!!”
Goldstein – I really enjoyed reading Rhonda’s book. We were just in Prague, Budapest, and Germany, so I have vivid memories of the same things she saw. I thought it was beautifully written and I couldn’t put it down. I read it on my vacation in one day.
Machles – Speaking as a Jewish educator, Rhonda has proven herself to be a valuable author and teacher. In 94 Maidens, as we make this journey with “Morah”
Rhonda to unravel the details of her family’s past, we are taught history and Jewish values as she generously and lovingly shares her family’s difficult journey to freedom. It is clear Rhonda is a devoted daughter, a superior educator, and a true friend to our Jewish culture.
S. & D. Greenbaum – BRAVO! Just finished your wonderful book. It was particularly interesting because we have been to so many places that you mention. You made the characters come alive and it was with deep sadness that we read the horrific stories – so many that we have heard through the years. YOU ARE DOING HISTORY A GREAT SERVICE BY MAKING SURE THESE STORIES ARE NEVER FORGOTTEN. Thank you!
