Facebook Live: Bending Toward the Sun: A Talk by Rita Lurie & Leslie Gilbert-Lurie
May 14 @ 12:00 pmFree
Rita Lurie was a five-year-old living in Poland when she and 14 other members of her family went into hiding from the Nazis. What they thought would be a week or two in an attic turned into almost two years.
Rita and her daughter, human rights activist Leslie Gilbert-Lurie, co-authored the memoir Bending Toward the Sun, which brings together the stories of three generations of women and reveals how deeply the Holocaust lives in the hearts and minds of survivors and their descendants.
