An Evening with Author Rachael Cerrotti
Wednesday, December 1, 2021 | 7:00 PM | Joseph-Beth Booksellers
Join HHC, Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, and Joseph-Beth Booksellers for a special evening with author Rachael Cerrotti. Rachael will join us for a discussion about her memoir, We Share the Same Sky. In 2009, Rachael Cerrotti, a college student pursuing a career in photojournalism, asked her grandmother, Hana, if she could record her story. Rachael knew that her grandmother was a Holocaust survivor and the only one in her family alive at the end of the war. Rachael also knew that she survived because of the kindness of strangers. It wasn’t a secret. Hana spoke about her history publicly and regularly. But, Rachael wanted to document it as only a granddaughter could. So, that’s what they did: Hana talked and Rachael wrote. The memoir weaves together the stories of these two women—Hana as a refugee who remains one step ahead of the Nazis at every turn, and Rachael, whose insatiable curiosity to touch the past guides her into the lives of countless strangers, bringing her love and tragic loss. Throughout the course of her twenties, Hana’s history becomes a guidebook for Rachael in how to live a life empowered by grief. Register Here

Upstander Family Museum Tour
Sunday, December 19, 2021 | 1:00 PM | Holocaust & Humanity Center
You might ask yourself, “What would I have done during the Holocaust?” Instead, ask yourself what you can do right now. During this 45-minute tour, you will learn about the upstanders who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.  You will then explore the Humanity Gallery, exploring the stories of individuals who have activated their character strengths to make a difference and impacting change in our world today. Upstanders are individuals who stand up for others and their rights. They fight against injustice and unfairness, and they use their character strengths to inspire action and become the best of humanity today.
