Ruth Kapp Hartz is a graduate of the University of Paris (Sorbonne).  After World War II, she emigrated to the U.S. in 1958, taught French for over 30 years at the Springside School in Chestnut Hill, Bryn Mawr College, and Arcadia University.  She is a member of the PA Holocaust Education Council, the American Association of Teachers of French, and the Alliance Française.
Her book, Your Name is Renée, is a moving story of suffering and redemption, fear and hope, seen through the eyes of an innocent 4-year-old child.  Her story poignantly recreates the terror of war, fleeing from home to home, separated from family, hidden by members of the French Resistance, ordinary people from the countryside, and even the Mother Superior of a convent.  A paper bag containing a few pieces of candy, smuggled into Ruth’s hands, is her only clue that her parents are still alive.
