RJD Moms Book Club

We will be reading "A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka: A Memoir" by Lev Golinkin.

Preview:
A compelling story of two intertwined journeys: a Jewish refugee family fleeing persecution and a young man seeking to reclaim a shattered past. In the twilight of the Cold War (the late 1980s), nine-year old Lev Golinkin and his family cross the Soviet border with only ten suitcases, $600, and the vague promise of help awaiting in Vienna. Years later, Lev, now an American adult, sets out to retrace his family's long trek, locate the strangers who fought for his freedom, and in the process, gain a future by understanding his past.

RJD will pay for attendees paperback or Kindle version of the book if desired. Please e-mail Becki at RebeccaFaktorovich@juf.org with your format preference.

RJD programs are funded in part by Genesis Philanthropy Group.

My America: Claudio Lomnitz

Eminent anthropologist Claudio Lomnitz, the founding director of Columbia University’s Center for Mexican Studies, discusses his heart-wrenching new memoir Nuestra América: My Family in the Vertigo of Translation. Lomnitz traces his family’s extraordinary voyages across Romania, Peru, Colombia, Israel, California, Mexico, Chile, and beyond. Weaving the stories of Jews like them, who fled Europe to South America, with the complex web of Latin American history, Nuestra América adds to the canon of indelible narratives on exile, immigration and family memoir, yet skillfully transcends all genre to reveal the complex and subtle connections between South American radical movements and Jewish emancipation and exile in the early 20th century.

Virtual Book & Author: "Hitler's True Believers"

Why did ordinary people choose to follow Hitler? It remains one of the many haunting questions asked in the aftermath of the Holocaust. How is it that millions of people came to accept and support the tenets of a racist ideology that drove Hitler’s quest for power in 1933, colored everything in the Third Reich, and eventually led to a genocide of unprecedented scale? It was a following that transformed him, however briefly, into one of the most powerful leaders in the world.
Robert Gellately’s "Hitler’s True Believers" posits that Hitler became a kind of representative figure for ideas, emotions, and aims that he shared with thousands, and eventually millions, of true believers who were of like mind.
Join us for a thought-provoking conversation with award-winning author Robert Gellately as we strive to understand the ideologies that propelled Hitler to power, those who became his true believers, and how these strategies relate to today.

Virtual "One Museum, One Book" Book Club: "Such a Fun Age"

Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains’ toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store’s security guard, seeing a young Black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right.
But Emira herself is wary of Alix’s desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix’s past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. With empathy and piercing social commentary, "Such a Fun Age" explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone “family,” and the complicated reality of being a grown-up.

Voices from Srebrenica: An Online Book Panel

Voices From Srebrenica: Survivor Narratives of the Bosnian Genocide tells the story of fourteen survivors of the Bosnian Genocide. Through their individual narratives, the book forges personal connections with the reader, ensuring that "never forget" and "never again" are more than just catchphrases. This moving book and these stories assure that remembrance and prevention live in the hearts of all those who encounter these harrowing deions of trauma and resilience.


Join us for a panel discussion of Voices From Srebrenica with its authors, Ann Petrila and Hasan Hasanović, as well as Emir Suljagić, Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Center. They will be joined by Jessica Hulten, Education Outreach Coordinator, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center; Ida Sefer, President, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute Chicago; and David Pettigrew, Professor, Southern Connecticut State University, and Board Member, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute. Following the discussion, we will open the floor for live questions from the audience.

Virtual Book & Author: "The Light of Days"

The hidden resistance efforts of Jewish women in ghettos during Nazi occupation are one of the most extraordinary and often-overlooked stories about World War II and the Holocaust. "The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos," the soon to be released book already optioned by Steven Spielberg for a major motion picture, shares the defiance and rebellion of women who worked together and risked their lives in the fight for justice and liberty.
"The Light of Days" shares an essential and inspirational truth for the cultural moment we’re living in today: small but essential victories are possible.
We invite you to us for a conversation with "The Light of Days" author, Judy Batalion, about female agency in World War II and the Holocaust. Don’t miss her insights about the incredible trove of epic yet intimate resistance stories, revealing the ingenuity and tenacity of young women and underscoring how their movement was larger and more organized than the annals of history have recorded—until now.

Virtual "One Museum, One Book" Book Club: "Antisemitism: Here and Now"

Over the last decade, there has been a noticeable uptick in antisemitic rhetoric and incidents by left-wing groups targeting Jewish students and Jewish organizations on American college campuses. And the reemergence of the white nationalist movement in America, complete with Nazi slogans and imagery, has been reminiscent of the horrific fascist displays of the 1930s. Throughout Europe, Jews have been attacked by terrorists, and some have been murdered.
Where is all this hatred coming from? Is there any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing antisemitism? What role has the anti-Zionist movement played? And what can be done to combat the latest manifestations of an ancient hatred?
In a series of letters to an imagined college student and imagined colleague, both of whom are perplexed by this resurgence, acclaimed historian Deborah Lipstadt gives us her own superbly reasoned, brilliantly argued, and certain to be controversial responses to these troubling questions.
