Join San Antonio Public Libraries for the conclusion of this year’s Holocaust Learn and Remember Series. Hear from Anna Salton Eisen, an author and second-generation Holocaust survivor, as she recounts her accidental discovery, as a youth, of two watercolor paintings by her father that depict the horrors of the Holocaust. She then set out in secret to uncover the truth about his past. Only years later, after she confronted her father about the importance of sharing his story, did he relent and join her on what would become a healing journey.
