Here is a quick note to let you know about my next appearance, for the Hayat Speaker Series at Congregation Neve Shalom in Metuchen at the Friday night service, 7:30pm, April 19, 2013. The title of my short presentation will be “Blima’s Daughter: A Second Generation Holocaust Story.” Discussion will continue over refreshments. I look forward to sharing my mother’s story and meeting everyone!
On another note, kudos to my friend, Michael G. Kesler, keynote speaker for Holocaust Remembrance hosted by the East Brunswick Public Library on April 11, 2013.. Michael is the author of Shards of War, a memoir of his experiences during the Holocaust, and frequently speaks at educational and commemorative functions. Dr. Jack Berger also presented a fascinating explanation of how he traced family genealogy and translated Yizkor Bikher, the history of several lost towns in Europe. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the Holocaust music of cellist Dr. Tamara Reps Freeman. Finally, it is always a joy to see Dr. Paul WInkler, Executive Director of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education. Paul has consistently supported my work and remains one of the greatest advocates for preserving the memory of the Holocaust as we move through the 21st Century.
