Speaker: Jack Hersch, author of Death March Escape, Thurs June 13, 7p
Join us for an evening with Jack J. Hersch (father of Sam Hersch) author of Death March Escape: The Remarkable Story of a Man Who Twice Escaped the Nazi Holocaust.
Jack thought he knew his father's story of surviving the holocaust well. But after his death, Jack came across a photograph that inspired a journey of discovery that led Jack into the secrets his father never revealed about being in the camps.
Join us in Pierson Hall (underneath the church) on Thursday, June 13 from 7-8:30pm.
Excerpts from reviews:
"Hersch effectively uses his father’s unusual story to convey the horrors of the Holocaust." - Publishers Weekly
"This deeply personal and extremely informative portrait of a man of indomitable will to live, as Hersch emphasizes, reminds us of why we must never forget nor trivialize the full, shocking truth about the Holocaust." - Booklist
