On October 12, the Florida Holocaust Museum hosted a panel presentation about our book. Ruth Finkel Wade was joined by Rita Benn in person and Joy Wolfe Ensor by Zoom. Over 45 people pre-registered for the event and a few more than this number attended. After our book introduction and excerpted readings, Erin Blankenship, the interim Executive Director, jumpstarted the Q & A with a few thoughtful questions, for example: "Did any of the authors have memoir writing experience or plans to write individual memoirs after this anthology? What are the commonalities that we see in the second generation experience? What is the one takeaway that we each hope people will walk away with after reading our book? These questions and our responses so engaged the audience that the questions kept coming one after another and we went past the projected time frame to end. You may listen to a recording of this presentation.
Ruth and Rita were delighted to sign additional books and to meet so many people of different ages who were deeply moved by our stories. They were particularly thrilled to see so many 2Gs in the audience and to find additional Ann Arbor roots in our audience - a former University of Michigan alumna who attended the university in the 1950's. It is indeed a small world!
