Thanks to all who came to the lecture and museum tour last Thursday. For those in Chicago who could not attend, don’t miss the new Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center. I was deeply moved by the architecture of the building and the personal items survivors have donated for display.
As we walked through the exhibits, my mother began to consider whether her own items have value. She has many letters from the 1930s written by her parents, German papers about the “sale” of the family home they owned since 1721, and tax documents from the late 1800s that prove her family owned eight pieces of property near her town, Stockstadt am Rhein. She may donate these papers to the museum.
I am scheduling speeches for 2010 when my new book is released. I will post upcoming speeches, presentations and school workshops on the “News & Events” page of this website.
