Mid-Week Field Notes–October 13, 2021

Some very quick things:

  1. I attended a virtual tribute to Elie Wiesel last night held at Washington National Cathedral. I met him once at the 92nd Street Y where he gave a talk about the MS St. Louis. I spoke to him in very clumsy Yiddish as he autographed my original copy of Dawn (I couldn’t find my original copy of Night). Last night’s tribute brought me to tears many times, as we honor his memory as a blessing for humanity. He continues to serve as an ultimate inspiration for tikkun olam. I think you can watch the video here.
  2. Sign up now for a free, 90-minute workshop on Writing Your Family History, Sunday, November 14, at 2:00 pm ET. To register, comment below or send an email to barbaradkrasner(at)gmail(dot)com.
  3. Coming up on October 28 at 7 pm ET: The History of Genocide in Cinema, Part II, a Zoom webinar sponsored by the Mercer Holocaust, Genocide & Human Rights Education Center.

Happy Writing!
