In honor of International Day of the Girl, The Anne Frank Center will present a special reading of selections from Professor Kathryn Hellerstein's new book "A Question of Tradition: Women Poets in Yiddish." The reading will feature musical accompaniment by Deborah Strauss.
Dancing with the Enemy - A Reading and Discussion with Author Paul Glaser
Wednesday, October 29, from 6:30-8:00
"Dancing with the Enemy" tells the gripping story of the author's aunt, a Jewish dance instructor who was betrayed to the Nazis by the two men she loved, yet managed to survive World War Ii by teaching dance lessons to the SS at Auschwitz.
All That I Am - A Reading and Discussion with Author Anna Funder
Wednesday, November 12, from 6:30-8:00
Award-winning author Anna Funder will read and sign copies of "All That I Am," a beautifully evocative debut novel about a group of young German exiles who risk their lives to awaken the world to the terrifying threat of Hitler and Nazi Germany.
