Lila Levinson Lecture

What an extraordinary evening it was this past Tuesday at the Millburn Public Library as a full house listened to Ms. Levinson's description of life as the daughter of a concentration camp liberator.  Ms. Levinson's father was an army surgeon who participated in the liberation of the camp at Nordhausen, also known as Dora-Mittelbau.  Her book, Gated Grief: Gated Grief: The Daughter of a GI Concentration Camp Liberator Discovers a Legacy of Trauma, explores her relationship with her father, whose photographs she found in his army trunk upon his death.  It was a riveting story, as evidenced by the number of questions and comments posed by the audience.  View pictures from the lecture, courtesy of Sharon Austin >>
