Some quick things:
- I am updating my Holocaustkidlit database. Good news: It should be done by the end of the week. Bad news: The version on holocaustkidlit.com refused to download. I had a lot of re-work to do. Next steps: Statistical analysis (through a statistical software package) and qualitative analysis (through NVivo).
- My first #52snapshot, “Black Taffeta,” will be published by The Kelsey Review, the literary magazine of Mercer County Community College, in the fall. So far, I’ve been successful in landing a piece in this journal every year since I began teaching at the college in 2016. This essay is about my father’s paternal grandmother and my namesake, Bryna Dvorkin Krasner.
- My talk on Monday at the Memory Studies Association went very well. I met some wonderful emerging scholars, including one from the Czech Republic who has an interest in the same Polish towns along the 1939 borders of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied zones.
