Join HBI for this in-person book launch of “The Weavers of Trautenau: Jewish Female Forced Labor in the Holocaust” by Janine Holc, the newest offering in the HBI Series on Jewish Women.

Paired with “Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated,” an immersive exhibition of painting and music, author Janine Holc will consider Lauren Bergman’s paintings and Ella Milch-Sheriff’s compositions that deal with sexual assault to present the instances of survivors responding to sexual violence and how they remember their teenage selves responding. Holc will contextualize these instances with material on how women found themselves in forced labor camps and how gender played an important role in the ways they experienced the Holocaust.

“Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated” is presented in partnership with the Dr. David M. Milch Foundation.

Registration is preferred but not required.
