Issues in Judaism Lecture Series: A Testimony of Survival and Appreciation

In fall 2018 Issues in Judaism Lecture Series will explore The Holocaust: Witnesses and Survivors. In the second lecture A Testimony of Survival and Appreciation author Renée Kann Silver describes her experience in Europe as a Jewish child during World War II in And Yet, I Still Loved France: Memoir of a European Childhood. The lecture will begin with a brief setting both geographically and historically surrounding her early childhood and leading up to the experience of war in France. She will discuss experiencing the brutal anti-Semitism of the French Vichy government, miraculously finding safety in the village of Le Chambon sur Lignon and her flight to Switzerland, and why she still loved France.


Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center in collaboration with Hofstra Hillel: The Center for Jewish Life on Campus.

Funding for these lectures has been provided in part by the Dorothy and Elmer Kirsch Endowment Fund for the Hofstra Cultural Center.
