HBI Book Launch:
The Weavers of Tratenau, Jewish Female Forced Labor in the Holocaust by Janine Holc, a 2023 publication in the HBI Series on Jewish Women.
October 17, 7 PM/In-Person
Please register to join this in-person event.
Paired with Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated, an immersive exhibition of painting and music, author Janine Holc will consider Lauren Bergman’s paintings 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.
