A Virtual Fireside Chat about The Takeaway Men: A Novel with Meryl Ain and Irving Roth, Moderated by Thane Rosenbaum

September 13 EDT


Holocaust Survivor Irving Roth will talk with Meryl Ain about her new novel, “The Takeaway Men,” which offers insights into the impact of the Holocaust on both the post-war life of Survivors and their children.

With the cloud of the Holocaust still looming over them, twin sisters Bronka and Johanna Lubinski and their parents arrive in the U.S. from a Displaced Persons Camp, hoping to build a new life. Poignant and haunting, “The Takeaway Men” explores the impact of immigration, identity, prejudice, secrets and lies on parents and children in mid-20th century America.

Author Meryl Ain’s articles and essays have appeared in Huffington Post, The Jewish Week, The New York Times, Newsday, and at among other outlets. She is a student and educator of history, as well as a school administrator and researcher.

Holocaust Survivor, Irving Roth, is the director of the Holocaust Resource Center at the Temple Judea of Manhasset, N.Y. Roth is a writer and internationally known educator and his story is now on display as a permanent memorial at the entrance to Auschwitz.

Thane Rosenbaum is a novelist, essayist, law professor and Distinguished University Professor at Touro College, where he directs the Forum on Life, Culture & Society. He hosts The Talk Show at the 92nd Street Y. His most recent book is entitled, “Saving Free Speech… from Itself.”
