It is children’s book about why great grandma was so sad and she was a Holocaust survivor this is one of the most amazing books ever.”

Since then he has been giving her book away to children and others.  “Why is Great-Grandma So Sad?” is available on


Canon White has been a friend and very supportive of our work for the Survivors in Israel.  Our work is like his, helping those who have been traumatized. We greatly appreciate when we can partner with someone and want to give honor where honor is due.
