Join EPHM and Congregation B’nai Zion for a discussion with author Mel Laytner about his newly released book: WHAT THEY DIDN’T BURN:UNCOVERING MY FATHER’S HOLOCAUST SECRETS. Growing up, author Mel Laytner saw his father as a quintessential Type B: passive and conventional. As he uncovered documents the Nazis didn’t burn, however, another man emerged—a black market ringleader and wily camp survivor who made his own luck. The tattered papers also shed light on painful secrets his father took to his grave. What They Didn’t Burn is a heartwarming, inspiring story of resilience and redemption. A story of how desperate survivors turned hopeful refugees rebuilt their shattered lives in America, all the while struggling with the lingering trauma that has impacted their children to this day. RSVP to the phone number or email provided.
