Holocaust Day of Remembrance
|Location||Georgetown Public Library|
|Date||Sun, Apr 24, 2:00pm - 4:00pm|
In recognition of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), the public is invited to a special presentation by author Anna Salton Eisen at the Georgetown Public Library, Hewlett Room on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 2:00PM. The program is FREE, and there will be a book signing after the lecture. In her presentation, Ms. Salton Eisen will discuss her understanding of her legacy as a child of Holocaust survivors, how trauma is revisited upon subsequent generations, and anti-Semitism today. Accompanying her will be Aaron Eisen, her son, third generation descendant, and co-author of the book. He is also involved in a documentary film, “In My Father’s Words”, that will be released this summer.
In her new book, Pillar of Salt: A Daughter’s Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust, she embraces her legacy as a second-generation survivor. The book completes the story told in The 23rd Psalm: A Holocaust Memoir, written with her father about his experiences in 10 concentration camps before being liberated by the Americans.
Ms. Salton Eisen is a founding member and the first president of Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas, site of the recent hostage situation.
There will be a book signing following the program. There is NO CHARGE for the program and refreshments will be served.
Ellen Silverman, Congregation Havurah Shalom
