misc_none 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM The Persistence of Memory: What Happens When All the Survivors Are Gone? Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

http://downloads.newtonfreelibrary.net/programs/EK%20images/08_2016/wx08_30_Program_Leora_Tec_Holocaust.jpgHow will we remember the Holocaust when those who lived through it are gone? Who is tasked with remembrance and what does it look like? Leora Tec is the daughter of Holocaust survivor and scholar, Nechama Tec, who wrote Defiance. The book was made into the 2007 film starring Daniel Craig. Through the lens of her experience as Nechama’s daughter, and her own experiences and connections with Polish scholars and artists who are grappling with this history, Leora will tease out the many ways of answering these questions.
