Author Talk & Book Signing

EPHM is pleased to partner with Congregation B'Nai Zion, as part of their Book Zone series, to welcome:

Rebecca Erbelding 

for a presentation and signing of her award-winning book, Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America's Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe   Rebecca Erbelding is a historian of American responses to the Holocaust and the author of the authoritative history of the War Refugee Board, Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America’s Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe (Doubleday, 2018), winner of the 2018 National Jewish Book Award for Writing Based on Archival Material (the JDC-Herbert Katzki Award). She is also a historian, archivist, and curator at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.   Rescue Board details the work of the War Refugee Board, a US government agency–run by a group of Treasury Department lawyers, most of them in their 30s–which rescued Jews during the Holocaust. They begged, borrowed, bribed, laundered money, falsified documents, opened a refugee camp, and threw the weight of the United States government behind their plans, ultimately saving tens of thousands of lives. Ms. Erbelding's talk will be followed by a book signing and refreshments. Rescue Board is available for sale in EPHM's Bookstore.
  Event Details: When: Thursday - February 13, 2020 - 6:30 PM Where: El Paso Holocaust Museum, 715 N. Oregon  Information: 915-351-0048 (EPHM) or 915-833-2222 (B'nai Zion)     ....Read More

Community Encounters: Standing Up

Tuesday - February 18, 2020 5:30 pm - Check-In 6:15 - 7:45 pm - Dinner and Conversation Temple Mount Sinai - 4408 N. Stanton Reservations are required, and seating is limited! RSVP to reserve your spot: 915.351.0048 / jamie@elpasoholocaustmuseum.org  In partnership with Temple Mount Sinai, the Interfaith Alliance, and the YWCA Racial Justice Program, EPHM presents, “Community Encounters,” an evening of dinner and dialogue. This community event invites participants to share a meal together, while also sharing their own stories, viewpoints, and perspectives, in an effort to build bridges of understanding with one another and to get to know our community in a richer way. Because, as Martin Luther King Jr. said, “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” The theme of the evening is "Community Encounters: Standing Up." This discussion will explore questions about being an upstander and not a bystander;  what is privilege and how can it be used to help others; how can individuals ensure everyone has a voice and is heard. And EPHM, together with its partners, invites the community to bring their stories and perspectives to the table for an enriching conversation in an inviting and welcoming space on this relevant and pressing topic. The format will be discussion based, with a table facilitator who will help guide the conversation along the theme. The table assignments will be lottery-style for each individual participant. There is no cost to attend, and dinner is included. Please RSVP to save your spot!

Thank you to all our community partners!

To RSVP: please call 915-351-0048 or email jamie@elpasoholocaustmuseum.org      ....Read More
