SEIFFERT TO SPEAK AT GLOBAL DAY OF JEWISH LEARNING NOV. 12
Author and Holocaust historian Hans-Hermann Seiffert will speak in the Howard County Jewish Federation’s Global Day of Jewish Learning on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017, from 3:35 to 4:35 p.m. at the River Hill High School, 12101 Clarksville Pike, in Clarksville, Md. This year’s Global Day theme is “Beauty & Ugliness.”
Uta Allers, who translated Seiffert’s book, “Johanna Hammel,” from German into English, also will participate in the Global Day program. Born in Germany, Ms. Allers has lived in North America since childhood and now resides in Baltimore. She has assisted the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum with many translations and has helped the children of Holocaust survivors in nonprofit efforts.
The program is free and open to the public, but registration, which may be done online, is required. See https://www.jewishhowardcounty.org/gdjl.
A $10 donation is suggested.
We are still hopeful that Mr. Seiffert will be signing books at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., or at another location in Columbia, Md., on Saturday, Nov. 11, and will let you know as soon as possible.
