Holocaust Survivors Memoir Writing Group - Public Reading

Thu, Jun 06, 2013 5:00am to 6:00am
The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, 2121 Allston Way, Berkeley

We are honored to present a reading by members of the Holocaust Survivors Memoir Writing Group, sponsored in conjunction with JFCS East Bay.

Over seven years of writing in a supportive workshop setting, the writers' voices have become more vibrant, distinct, and confident as each writer revisits his or her childhood and teen years lived under Nazi fascist rule, an era marked by displacement, and constant terror. These post-war Survivors have produced narratives which reflect extraordinary experiences, poignant memories, painful losses, and enormous personal strengths as they navigated life in hiding and as refugees. 

Please join us to experience these stories firsthand, and to celebrate the legacies of these honorable members of our community.
