A World Erased: A Grandson’s Search for His Family’s Holocaust Secrets by Noah Lederman

Noah Lederman, the grandson of Holocaust survivors and the author of the memoir A World Erased: A Grandson’s Search for His Family’s Holocaust Secrets, had always wanted to hear his grandparents’ stories. The stories, however, gave their own children nightmares. Thus tales of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and of the concentration camps were off limits to the third generation. Noah Lederman will speak about how he finally gained access to his grandparents’ memories before they disappeared forever. Selected as one of the best books of the year by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Lederman’s stories will transport audiences from his grandparents’ kitchen table in Brooklyn to World War II Poland.
