Virtual Family-Friendly iRead Book Club: "Salvaged Pages" by Alexandra Zapruder
|Date||Fri, May 8, 1:00pm - 2:00pm|
This week's book club will feature a special look at author Alexandra Zapruder's newest project, Dispatches from Quarantine.
Join the Dallas Holocaust & Human Rights Museum for a virtual book discussion led by their museum educators. This week, they will discuss "Salvaged Pages" by Alexandra Zapruder. "Salvaged Pages" is a stirring collection of diaries written by young people, ages 12 to 22, during the Holocaust. Some of the writers were refugees, others were in hiding or passing as non-Jews, some were imprisoned in ghettos, and nearly all perished before liberation. This collection preserves the impressions, emotions, and eyewitness reportage of young people whose accounts of daily events and often unexpected thoughts, ideas, and feelings serve to deepen and complicate our understanding of life during the Holocaust.
The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. The link to join will be sent to all registered guests the day of the program.
Space is limited! Please register for one ticket per device used.
This program is recommended for students in 6th – 12th grade and adults.
