Oakwood High School is hosting An Evening with Gerda Weissmann Klein, a special author event open to the public on Thursday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in the Oakwood High School Auditorium.
To encourage community participation in this special visit, Wright Library is holding book discussion groups of All But My Life on March 26 at 1:00 p.m. and March 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room.
For over six decades, author, historian, speaker, and Holocaust survivor, Gerda Weissmann Klein has captivated audiences worldwide with her powerful message of hope, inspiration, love and humanity. In her speeches and books, Klein draws from her wealth of life experiences: from surviving the Holocaust and meeting her future husband on the day of her liberation, to her journey to the United States, accepting an Oscar and Emmy for a documentary based on her life, and her constant fight to promote tolerance, encourage community service and combat hunger.
Gerda Klein has authored nine books on a wide variety of topics for an array of different audiences. These include her memoir, All But My Life, which was the foundation for the Oscar and Emmy-winning HBO documentary One Survivor Remembers.
