Commentator Heather Dune Macadam is the co-author of the book Rena's Promise: A Story of Sisters in Auschwitz. It's the autobiography of Holocaust survivor Rena Gellissen. Even though the book was published in 1995, Rena and Heather have remained close over the years. And since Rena was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they have become even closer, in a way.
