Author Talk: From Generation to Generation

Date(s) - May 8, 2024

354 Quaker Road

In commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah), author Michelle Weinfeld will discuss her intergenerational memoir, From Generation to Generation: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Identity in the Aftermath of the Shoah. 

The book explores the intersection of values, history, and identity as Weinfeld’s story is interwoven with that of her grandfather, Poppy, a Holocaust survivor. Poppy’s account of loss and rebuilding, layered with Weinfeld’s journey to self-acceptance in the face of antisemitism, demonstrates that trauma does not affect only the individual, but can transcend generations.

Books will be available for purchase. A percentage of all proceeds from this book will be donated to The Museum of Jewish Heritage: A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York City.

Presented in partnership with Princeton Public Library.
