Please join us on November 13 for the 4th Annual Bella Mischkinsky Memorial Lecture, featuring Professor Emerita Myrna Goldenberg, who will deliver a presentation titled, "Women's Voices from the Holocaust."

Dr. Goldenberg will share research from her most recent anthology, Before All Memory is Lost: Women's Voices from the Holocaust, where she gathers and amplifies the voices of 25 Canadian Holocaust survivors--women who spent their war years in hiding, passing as non-Jews, in labor concentration and death camps in Europe or the Soviet Union. Alongside the horrific and devastating circumstances they speak too of cooperation and caring, and of challenges they encountered as women and as Jews. Before All Memory is Lost has been awarded the 2017 Canadian Jewish Book Award, and was a finalist for the 2017 National Jewish Book Award.
A light reception and book signing will follow.

This event is free and open to the public. It also meets the multicultural diversity training requirement for MC employees. For information on the full series, please visit montgomerycollege.edu/athenaeum.

Dr. Myrna Goldenberg is the founding director of the Paul Peck Humanities Institute and a Professor Emerita from Montgomery College in Maryland. Goldenberg's research explores Holocaust and Genocide studies, gender and the Holocaust and American Jewish women's literature and history. She has been one of the leading scholars studying Women and the Holocaust, and is the editor of a recent collection of essays on the subject Before All Memory is Lost: Women's Voices from the Holocaust ((C)2017, The Azrieli Foundation).

This event is co-sponsored by the Frank Islam Athenaeum Symposia Speakers Series and the Paul Peck Humanities Institute.
