Noah Lederman, "A World Erased: A Grandson's Search for His Family's Holocaust Secrets"


Noah Lederman, the grandson of Holocaust survivors, had always wanted to hear his grandparents' stories. The stories, however, gave their own children nightmares, and so Lederman's grandparents shared with him only less-harrowing versions. Thus, many tales of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and of the concentration camps were off limits to the third generation. But with persistence and some travel missteps, Lederman finally gained access to his grandparents' memories before they disappeared forever. Selected as one of the best books of the year by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Lederman's stories will transport audiences from his grandparents' kitchen table in Brooklyn to World War II Poland.

Noah Lederman's articles have been featured in the Economist, the Boston Globe, the Miami Herald, the Washington Post, Slate, Salon, the New Republic, Tablet Magazine, the Jerusalem Post Magazine, and elsewhere. He is the author of the soon-to-be-released memoir, A World Erased: A Grandson's Search for His Family's Holocaust Secrets, which will be available for sale at the talk.
