“The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million” with Daniel Mendelsohn

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Fifteen years after the release of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the National Jewish Book Award winner, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million is now being reissued. The updated book contains new material developed in conjunction with Ken Burns’s new 3-part documentary, The U.S. and the Holocaust, which features Daniel Mendelsohn and the story of his family.

Join The Museum of Jewish Heritage for an evening conversation with Daniel Mendelsohn. Copies of the new book will be available for purchase at the event and our online store, with a book signing to follow.

The Lost is a modern classic of post-memory literature and a riveting exploration of the Holocaust by a descendent of its victims. Daniel Mendelsohn spent five years in a dozen countries on four continents with his brother Matt (an award-winning photojournalist whose photographs appear throughout the book) searching for an answer to the question he had first asked as a boy: What really happened to his great-uncle Shmiel and his family during the Holocaust? Spoken of only in hushed murmurs or incomprehensible Yiddish phrases, Daniel later discovered a bundle of letters written by Shmiel in 1939 and vowed to solve this family puzzle.
