By all rights, Trisha could have turned to drugs or alcohol. She grew up in a time when it was not pleasant to be Jewish. She survived bullying and religious discrimination. So at a young age, she got tough. When her husband – Gerald Posner – was researching his book on Josef Mengele (The Angel of Death in the Holocaust), she learned of the part that a pharmacist, Victor Capesius, played in the horrors of the Holocaust. Her book – The Pharmacist of Auschwitz has been a national bestseller.
The Pharmacist of Auschwitz was the first nonfiction account of Nazi officer Victor Capesius. Posner’s book is the spellbinding story of Nazi Germany’s largest industrial conglomerate, I.G. Farben. Capesius worked for Farben’s Bayer pharmaceutical subsidiary.”
