Jewish Book Council
Today I was in New York, at the Jewish Book Council “Meet the Author” event. Each author who has signed up for the 2016-17 round of speaking engagements can present their book for two minutes. I was pitching the paperback edition of “Stolen Legacy” – due out in October.
Filming in Berlin
Outside my family’s former building, now a German Government Ministry, at Krausenstrasse 17/18, Berlin.
Being interviewed by a BBC reporter for a feature on the story of “Stolen Legacy.”
As soon as I know dates and times of broadcast I will post the information.
US Holocaust Memorial Museum
This evening at the USHMM speaking to a crowded theatre audience on the subject of justice for Holocaust victims, whose property was seized during the Nazi era, and their lives torn apart.
Joining me on stage were museum experts Dr. Leah Wolfson and Dr. Suzanne Brown-Fleming.
Jewish Book Week 2016
The theater at London’s JW3 in Finchley was packed for my interview today with Melanie Phillips about Stolen Legacy. Tickets had sold out days beforehand and some people had to be turned away at reception as a result. The audience loved the photos we were able to illustrate the story with and lots of people came up to me afterwards to tell me their family histories.
Jewish Alliance of Rhode Island
On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I joined fellow author Lisa Leff in Providence, RI for a program entitled Reactions to the Holocaust: Journey for Justice.
The audience was fascinated by our respective stories and one man came up to me at the end of my presentation and told me he was convinced his parents had bought a fur hat from the H. Wolff fur company!
