The US Holocaust Museum selected 50 libraries in 50 states for their traveling exhibit—Americans and the Holocaust.
Marshall Public Library in Marshall, IL is one of 50 U.S. libraries selected to host Americans and the Holocaust, a traveling exhibition from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that examines the motives, pressures and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war and genocide in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s. Americans and the Holocaust: A Traveling Exhibition for Libraries is an educational initiative of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the American Library Association.
Marshall Library asked me to speak about my book, Mollie’s War: The Letters of a WWII WAC in Europe and the women who served in the Women’s Army Corp (WAC) in WWII highlighting my mother’s service especially as a Jewish woman serving in Europe. I will be speaking to the high school students during the day (September 28) and the Library in the evening.
