Holocaust Memorial Lecture: 'Lost' Between Memory and History: Writing the Holocaust for the Next Generation

The Lost: A Search for the Six of the Six Million

Young Student Center
Thursday, October 03, 2013 · 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Professor Mendelsohn, author of "The Lost," will explore the meaning of the Holocaust as both a historical and literary event as time passes and the event belongs to a new generation of writers, and readers, who no longer have direct contact with the event itself.

Daniel Mendelsohn is an internationally known bestselling author and award-winning critic and essayist. His New York Times Best Seller, The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million, is the story of his search for the truth behind his family’s tragic past during the Holocaust.

Join us for this evocative evening with a master writer.
