Guest Speaker: Dr. Jack Solomon Berger

The Imperative for translation of a History Entombed Behind a Language Barrier

Dr. Berger has translated more than a dozen Holocaust Memorial Books, shedding light on the stories of our Eastern European history, illuminating the way of life of those eradicated communities through the living words of people, who were born and raised in those communities.

I marvel at the resilience of the Jewish people. Their best characteristic is their desire to remember. No other people has such an obsession with memory.
