Holding on Through Letters:
Jewish Families During the Holocaust
Lecturer: Dr. Deborah Dwork
Sunday, April 26, 1 p.m. at the KHRCA
Join us for a lecture by the Rose Professor of Holocaust History and founding Director of the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University. She will discuss Jewish families in Nazi Europe who tried to hold onto each other through letters, but wartime conditions applied. Letters were censored and could not be sent between countries at war. She will address the following questions: How did families keep in contact with each other? And, if contact was able to be established, what could they say and what to remain silent?
All group visits to the Harriet & Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center & Archives are by appointment only.
Groups can be scheduled for Monday – Thursday from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Friday 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM and on designated Sundays. To schedule a visit contact 718-281-5770. Read more
