This lovely apricot dumplings recipe is from a cookbook written by Eva Oswalt between 1943 and 1945 while she was imprisoned at Ravensbrūck concentration camp.
Eva survived the concentration camp, although most of her family did not survive the war. Eva’s cookbook is now archived at US Holocaust Memorial Museum, and to memorialize Holocaust Remembrance Day I made these. I will continue to make them yearly in Eva’s name.
