In this heartfelt, compelling memoir, a Holocaust father and his son embark on a trip to trace the Eastern Europe locations that led to the death of the father’s brother, Shmuel, who was shot by the Nazis while escaping from a train heading to Auschwitz. In tender prose, the author tells of the trauma his father and his father’s family endured during the Second World War as well as the experiences of being a child of a Holocaust survivor.  The author, poet Jason Sommer, expects to join us via zoom for the discussion.
