"Hiding In The Spotlight," is the story of Zhanna Arshanskaya Dawson. At the age of six she was offered scholarships to the most prestigious conservatories in the Soviet Union but in 1941 diaster strikes and she is forced to endure the unthinkable.
As the Germany army plows its way through the Ukraine en route to Moscow, Zhanna and her family are about to be executed along with thousands of other Jews in the ravines of Drobitsky Yar. A few short miles from certain death, her father urges her to escape through the woods.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN HOST Kathy Barrett interviews Zhanna Arshanskaya Dawson about her inspiring story of survival and her son Greg Dawson, journalist and author of HIDING IN THE SPOTLIGHT about documenting his mother's haunting and unforgettable story.
The life of Zhanna Arshanskaya Dawson is a tribute to what the human spirit can achieve.
