Family Affairs: Writing Parents’ Stories
April 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
In the fourth program of the series, Bernice Lerner, author of “All the Horrors of War: A Jewish Girl, a British Doctor and the Liberation of Bergen-Belsen,” and Susan Jacobowitz, author of the manuscript “Far from Childhood: A Holocaust Memoir,” discuss with Natalia Aleksiun their parents’ interrupted childhoods during the Holocaust in the Carpathian Mountains. The authors will reflect on their work uncovering the life trajectories of Rachel Genuth and Henryk Jakobowicz and the link between their own familiarity with and distance from the stories. They will share insights about the role of their own scholarship and writing about intimate tales of suffering, rupture, continuity and courage.
