We Are Here


Author Ellen Cassedy was in town last weekend to read selections from her new book We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust at KAM Isaiah Israel in Hyde Park on Sunday March 4th.

For the past ten years, Ellen has devoted much of her time, talent, and energy to exploring the world of the Lithuanian Holocaust.

Her articles and translations (from Yiddish into English) have appeared in Bridges: A Jewish Feminist Journal, Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies, Forward, and Hadassah.

Ellen will be returning to Metro Chicago in April to present a joint program with Ruta Sepetys (author of Between Shades of Gray).

Where:  Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture; 6500 South Pulaski Road; Chicago, IL

When: Sunday April 29th @ 2 PM
