Echoes in Ink: A Liberation Day Reading of Short Stories From the Holocaust
|Date||Thu, Jan 27, 9:00am - 10:00am|
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, many Jewish writers turned to pen and paper to reckon with the enormity of their loss. The stories they wrote—both fiction and nonfiction—bring to life the darkest moments of human history at the same time as they remind us of the human capacity for renewal and regeneration.
On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, join the Museum of Jewish Heritage for a reading of two such short stories: The Road of No Return written by Rachel Häring Korn and read by Mili Avital and A Wedding in Brownsville written by Isaac Bashevis Singer and read by Eleanor Reissa. The program will premiere at 10 AM Eastern Time and be available all day.
Public programming at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference); the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy C. Hochul and the New York State Legislature; Battery Park City Authority; The Goldie and David Blanksteen Foundation; Marcia Horowitz Educational Fund for Cross-Cultural Awareness; and other generous donors.
