Debra Slone, as suffragette Addie, will give us a look at the early 1900’s when the new century is bursting with energy and the future seems limitless. Women are divided on the right to vote and a young energetic president brings changes here and abroad. Automobiles are still a luxury and postcards, nickelodeons and cycling are all the rage. Everyone watches the mail for the Sears Roebuck Catalog. Fashion brings more comfort and larger hats. Good etiquette and proper social usage is expected and practiced. All are welcome to attend this program sponsored by the Zonta Club of Columbus Indiana.

Esther Davidson, a holocaust survivor and her husband Ed, a retired US Army officer, offer a brief, powerful, incisive and personal look at this tragic event. Esther, born in Poland in 1941, shares her childhood memories with words and pictures of lost family, the trauma of separation, surviving a tragic war and genocide, living in a Displaced Persons (DP) camp for four years, and ultimately what it was like coming to America. Ed, born in America but with direct links to the Holocaust, provides a candid verbal and visual presentation about the famous Nuremburg Trials. He also discusses WWII Nazi concentration camps and takes you on a tour of the infamous Dachau Concentration Camp near Munich. Time will be provided for questions and dialogue with the audience. Join this great opportunity to hear facts from those who were there, and hear their message of remembrance and hope. Our speakers come to us through the Indianapolis Bureau of Jewish Education. Sponsored by the Bartholomew County Library Associates. January 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Truly an amazing book. The author brought you so vividly into the main character's inner thoughts and emotions that even her psychosis began to make sense.
