The Third Daughter tells the remarkable story based on the little known but true history of thousands of young Jewish women who were trafficked into prostitution at the turn of the 20th century and whose subjugation helped build Buenos Aires. Meet author Talia Carner, and join us to discuss the book, her research and her work against trafficking.
