"What Papa Told Me": A Granddaughter's Perspective on the Holocaust (IN-PERSON)

Thursday, April 13 from 5:30 - 6:45 p.m.

Felice Cohen, the grandchild of two Holocaust survivors, is the author of the award-winning book “What Papa Told Me.”  Cohen spent 18 years (on and off) working with her grandfather on a book about his life before, during and after the Holocaust. She wrote it as a gift to him, never expecting to sell one copy, let alone selling 30,000 copies.


In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day, she will talk about the experience of writing the book, and how it changed her life, making her not only an author but a Holocaust educator.


Program is an intergenerational event, open to all.  No registration required.

PLEASE NOTE: While there will certainly be upsetting and difficult moments, we welcome kids (at the discretion of parents/guardians) to be included in this program.


This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Kirkman Trust.
