Memoirist Hannah Perlstein Marcus Author of Sidonia’s Thread & Surviving Remnant

March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

How did a single immigrant mother survive on her own in America? Through her wits, her imagination, and above all, her hands.

How did memories of the Holocaust affect the life and livelihood of one Holocaust survivor in New England? What legacy did she leave? What are the implications of her legacy today?

Come listen to memoirist, Hanna Perlstein Marcus, speak about her life with her mother, Sidonia, a master dressmaker and designer, and Holocaust survivor.  Marcus will talk about her books, Sidonia’s Thread and Surviving Remnant, the first two books in the Sidonia’s Thread trilogy. You will learn the challenges of a foreign-born woman with no family except a young daughter and how she overcame her sorrow with the creative talent that made a name for her in New England. The author will bring samples of her mother’s creative designs, which will be on display at the Windham Textile and History Museum from February 8-April 28, 2019. Come listen to a story like no other post-Holocaust tale you have ever heard.

This program is free and open to the public in Buchanan Auditorium.
