Lola Bensky
(Counterpoint, 2013)

Author Lily Brett in conversation with Liel Leibovitz, senior writer, Tablet Magazine

Australian rock journalist Lily Brett rubbed elbows with Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who, but started her life in a German DP camp- the child of Auschwitz survivors. Brett explores this unusual trajectory in her autobiographical novel Lola Bensky.

THE ROSENBLATT FORUM
Sunday, December 8, 2:30 P.M.

Jewish Genes: A Contemporary Look

Dr. Harry Ostrer, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in conversation with Judith Shulevitz, The New Republic

Can Jewishness be transmitted genetically? Viewed in light of Nazi history, is such thinking dangerous? Ostrer, a leading figure in the field of population genetics, and Shulevitz discuss how scientific advances can challenge our understanding of Jewish peoplehood and continuity, and possibly even save lives.

$10, $7 students/seniors, $5 members

The Rosenblatt Forum is made possible through a generous gift by Lief Rosenblatt and endows a wide range of public programs.
