Event details
Calendar   Speaking Engagements
Location Beth-El Congregation
Date Sun, May 1, 10:30am - 11:30am
Duration   1h

Anna Salton Eisen was an adult when she finally broke her parents’ silence about their Holocaust experiences. In her new memoir, Pillar of Salt: A Daughter’s Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust, Anna combines the meticulous research of a scholar with the compassion of a daughter, courageously embracing her legacy as a second-generation survivor. She will share her discoveries as she delves into the secrets of her father’s past as a Holocaust survivor of ten concentration camps and the emotional journey she took with him to Poland.

The presentation includes her father’s Holocaust artwork, original documents from the Arolsen Nazi Archives, and the surprising reunion of Anna with families of her father’s fellow concentration camp prisoners. A teaser will be shown of an upcoming documentary film based on Pillar of Salt and her father’s memoir The 23rd Psalm that she co-authored.
