Sunday Salons with Norbert Friedman
"The discussion of women's unique experiences provides a missing element of what we must now see as an incomplete picture of Jewish life during the Holocaust. We cannot fully understand the events of the Holocaust without examining the role and fate of these women" Professor Dalia Ofer of Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Professor Lenore J. Weitzman of George Mason University.
Sunday, May 5, 12:00-1:30: Pre-War Jewish Women's Roles and Responsibilities
Sunday, June 9, 12:00-1:30: Resourcefulness in the Ghettos
Sunday, July 7, 12:00-1:30: Heroines of the Resistance and Beyond
Join Polish Holocaust survivor Norbert Friedman in a three-session exploration of the plight and heroism of Jewish women during the Holocaust. Mr. Friedman's deep interest in the unique challenges faced by women dates back to his personal experiences and observations while a prisoner of eleven different Nazi concentration camps.
Mr. Friedman welcomes the give-and-take of inquiry and conversation. An accomplished writer and raconteur, he is the author of the memoir Sun Rays at Midnight, and a collection of short stories, Sappy Tales and Silent Screams. The New York State Board of Regents voted Mr. Friedman 'Citizen of the Year' in 2001 for teaching The Holocaust.
