Writ­ing Europe Before the Holo­caust: A Con­ver­sa­tion with Rachel Kadish and Men­achem Kaiser

Hosted By: Jew­ish Book Coun­cil

Join US-based Jew­ish Book Coun­cil and UK-based The Jew­ish Quar­ter­ly for a unique lit­er­ary event.

In a con­ver­sa­tion mod­er­at­ed by JBC Edi­to­r­i­al Direc­tor Bec­ca Kan­tor, authors Rachel Kadish (The Weight of Ink) and Men­achem Kaiser (Plun­der) will dis­cuss their con­tri­bu­tions to the Feb­ru­ary 2022 issue of The Jew­ish Quar­ter­ly, ​“In Search of Lost Time: Europe Before the Holocaust.”

In her essay ​“Love and Resti­tu­tion: The Van­ished World of my Family’s Hotel,” Rachel Kadish traces the sto­ry of her fam­i­ly’s hotel in pre­war Poland, which lat­er became a Nazi bar­racks and then a Pol­ish high school. In ​“Paper Brigade: The Incred­i­ble Sto­ry of the Vil­nius Archive,” Men­achem Kaiser exam­ines the lin­eage and the future of the extra­or­di­nary archives of pre­war Jew­ish doc­u­ments that were dis­cov­ered recent­ly in Lithua­nia – and whose orig­i­nal res­cuers became the name­sake for JBC’s lit­er­ary jour­nal. Togeth­er, the two authors will explore the sig­nif­i­cance of the remains of the past, the bat­tle to pre­serve them, and whether it is pos­si­ble to seek resti­tu­tion for his­toric injustices.
