“The Crate: A Story of War, a Murder, and Justice” Author Talk
Sunday, February 24th at 2:00 in the Meeting Room. Snow date: March 3rd.
This is the intimate story of a gruesome crime that involved the author’s family of Holocaust survivors. In 2010, they discovered a wooden crate, nailed tightly shut and hidden underneath their cherished lake house. They were not prepared for the horrific contents of the crate. The discovery traumatized the family, and dredged up their memories of the Holocaust – of surviving concentration camps, cattle cars, death marches – and forced them to confront violence yet again.
