Noah Lederman Author Talk
A World Erased: A Grandson’s Search for His Family’s Holocaust Secrets
Sunday January 22, 2017
2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
This poignant memoir by Noah Lederman, the grandson of Holocaust survivors, transports readers from his grandparents’ kitchen table in Brooklyn to World War II Poland. Together, Noah and his grandmother explore the memories— of Auschwitz and a half-dozen other camps, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the displaced persons camps—that his grandmother had buried for decades. I was left with the stories—the ones that had been hidden, the ones that offered catharsis, the ones that gave me a second hero, the ones that resurrected a family, the ones that survived even death. Their shared journey profoundly illuminates the transformative power of never forgetting.
Noah Lederman has written for The Economist, The Boston Globe, Miami Herald, The Washington Post, Slate, The New Republic, Chicago Sun-Times, BBC Travel, Salon, The Philadelphia Inquirer, San Francisco Chronicle, Tablet Magazine, The Jerusalem Post Magazine, Tikkun, Long Island Pulse, and Writer’s Digest.
Noah Lederman will sign books available for purchase at the program. This is a pre-publication event.
