Thursday, April 19th, 2012

“This Justifies a Life: Lanzmann’s Memoir and Yom HaShoah”
By Nathan Szajnberg, MD and Arnold Richards, MD. April 17, 2012

I’m Carrying the Holocaust in My Pocket by Rivka Greenberg

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

 

Dear Friends,
My new documentary about the third generation titled I’m Carrying The Holocaust In My Pocket will be airing in New York this week. The documentary and my upcoming play Eavesdropping On Dreams are two variations of the same theme. Each piece helps to validate the other.
 
The documentary will premiere tomorrow Wednesday, April 18th, the eve of Yom Hashoah at 9:00 AM on Channel 34, and again at 2:00 PM on Channel 56.
 
I hope you will be able to tune in.
Regards,
Rivka
