Mid-Week Field Notes | May 12, 2021

Four quick things this week:

  • I have joined a Holocaust writing group. Other members are children of survivors. We meet on an ad hoc basis to share our writing and to generate new writing.
  • I am no longer a literary agent. After long, hard thinking, I decided to give it up so I can concentrate more on my position as Director, Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Center and on my dissertation.
  • Save the Date, May 27, at 6 pm ET: “It’s Personal: Grandchildren Carry the Legacies of Their Holocaust Survivor Grandparents.” Two speakers representing 3GNJ and 3GNY address how their grandparents’ narratives shaped their own lives. The Zoom event is hosted by the Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Center.  RSVP to HGHRCenter@mccc.edu
  • Save the Dates, June 3 and June 10, 4-6 pm ET: Educators Conference co-hosted by Echoes and Reflections and Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Center. The focus: “The Holocaust as a Case Study: Analyzing Propaganda and Teaching Media Literacy.” For more information, contact HGHRCenter@mccc.edu.
