Presented in partnership with the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center and Jewish Federation of St. Louis
Despite the outpouring of books, movies, and memorials devoted to the Holocaust, a coherent explanation of why such ghastly carnage erupted from the heart of civilized Europe still seems elusive even seventy years later. While responding to the questions he has been most frequently asked by students over the decades, world-renowned Holocaust historian and professor Peter Hayes brings a wealth of scholarly research and experience to bear on conventional, popular views of the history. Hayes weaves together stories and statistics to heart-stopping effect. “Why?” is an authoritative, groundbreaking exploration of the origins of one of the most tragic events in human history.
Acclaimed novelist Elizabeth Berg shares a novel of the small acts that turn friends into family. For the past six months, Arthur Moses’s days have looked the same: He tends to his rose garden and to Gordon, his cat, then rides the bus to the cemetery to visit his beloved late wife for lunch. Eighteen-year-old Maddy Harris often comes to the cemetery to escape the other kids at school and a life of loss. She’s seen Arthur sitting there alone, and one afternoon she joins him—a gesture that begins a surprising friendship between two lonely souls.
