Join us at one of the following book events where different groups of authors will reflect and share their different perspectives in writing about, honoring and healing from their experiences in living with their survivor parents. You can also download this schedule.
We have been excited to share our book with different audiences this past summer and early fall. Below are photos of our presenting authors at events sponsored by the Kerrytown Bookfest, Children of Holocaust Survivors Association in Michigan (CHAIM), New Buffalo District Library and Nicola's Books.
In a review of our book printed in the quarterly newsletter of The Michigan Psychologist, a publication of the Michigan Psychological Association, Dr. Steven Ceresnie summarizes: "This book is a treasure of information about the wide effects of trauma. The Second Generation’s unique remembrances about their Holocaust survivor parents are filled with honesty, joy, sadness, vulnerability, conflict, anger, humility, hope, and resilience – the qualities that make us human. This book has much to teach us about the universal themes of how trauma lives in family members and how we may triumph over trauma in unique and creative ways." You may read his full review here. In addition to advance praise for our book, you can find new reviews on our book page at Amazon and Good Reads.
In this 30-minute engaging interview, Joy Wolfe Ensor, a retired psychologist and Simone Yehuda, a playwright, share their motivations for developing and contributing to the collection of stories described in The Ones Who Remember. Listeners will be able to get a quick overview of the book that will pique their interest to further explore these authors' amazing journeys and the many more that are offered in this unique anthology. Here is the link to this wonderful episode of the Curious Professor facilitated by Dr. Karen Bryson.
Drawing from their recently published book, Rita Benn, Natalie Iglewicz and Nancy Szabo presented at the downtown Ann Arbor Public Library on June 1 on their lived experience growing up with parents who survived the Holocaust. As one of the book's contributing authors shared, "It's not about what happens to you. It's about what you do with what happens to you". The authors read excerpts from their book and responded to many questions posed by the audience. During the book signing, individual audience members remarked how moving and inspirational they found this talk, and how grateful they felt to attend this event.
Our book is featured in the May Jewish Book Carnival , a monthly event blog where bloggers who know about Jewish books can meet, read and comment on each other's posts.
After our Ann Arbor book launch, over forty friends and acquaintances in St. Petersburg, Florida gathered to celebrate the publication of our book.
