We Are Their Voice: Young People Respond to the Holocaust (Book Launch)

Nov 4, 2012, 2-4PM

Do young people today find meaning in the Holocaust? This question prompted a writing project that brought heart felt responses from students from across North America and abroad. Their voices – in the form of letters, essays, poems and art – provide amazing answers and a hope for a more peaceful and tolerant future. Kathy Kacer travels widely talking about the importance of remembering our history. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, she has written many award-winning books about the Holocaust, including To Hope and Back: The Journey of the St. Louis, The Diary of Laura’s Twin, Hiding Edith and The Secret of Gabi’s Dresser. Kacer created this project with educators Karen Kasny, Alan Gotlib, Susan Gordin and Shawntelle Nesbitt to prove that young people do, indeed, feel a meaningful connection to the Holocaust.
