Leora Tec first went to Poland in 2005 when her mother, Holocaust survivor and scholar Nechama Tec invited her daughter to accompany her on a book tour. Leora was astonished by the warm welcome they received and by the remembrance work being done in Poland by non-Jews. As she returned again and again Leora knew that she had to bring others there to see how lovingly the fragments of the Jewish people’s lives were being taken care of. This evening, we invite you to listen as Leora Tec shares the story of her journeys to Poland, a land many think of as a place filled with haunted memories, but a place where she has discovered, and works to show others is a place filled with hope for humanity.
