Mercer County Holocaust Center to Host Lecture by
Author Jasha Levi Feb. 13

1/23/13

West Windsor, N.J. -- The Mercer County Holocaust-Genocide Resource Center (MCHGRC) invites community members to a lecture by author and Holocaust survivor Jasha Levi on Wednesday, Feb. 13. The program begins at 4:30 p.m. and is presented free of charge. The center is located on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College, 1200 Old Trenton Road, on the second floor of the Library Building (next to the college bookstore).
 
Now 90 years old, Mr. Levi will recall his life as an anti-Nazi student revolutionary and anti-Soviet protestor, as well as his career path as a foreign reporter and then an American laborer, draftsman, sales clerk, and executive of two national non-profits.

As described in "The Last Exile," a memoir of his personal history, Levi says, “From Sarajevo in 1921 to New York in 1956 and beyond, this is a memoir of my journey – before, during and after the Holocaust – over continents, through wars and peace, hatreds and brotherhoods, successes and hardships, uprootings and setting up roots again.”

In addition to "The Last Exile," Levi is also the author of "Blood Without Honey" and "Requiem for a Country." More about Mr. Levi is available at www.jashalevi.com.

The presentation is especially appropriate for educators, students and those with an interest in the world-shaping events of the 20th century. Two professional development hours are available for educators. Educators should register by visiting http://education.state.nj.us/events.
