Reading with the Amherst History Museum Curator - ONLINE

Wednesday, October 19, 2022

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join the Amherst History Museum Visiting Curator, Diana Lembach Lempel, for a book discussion of Witness: Lessons from Elie Wiesel's Classroom by Ariel Burger on Zoom on Wednesday, October 19, at 7:00 p.m. Copies of the book are available at the reference desk. To attend a Zoom book discussion, please contact Linda Wentworth at

"In his exploration of Elie Wiesel's teachings, Ariel Burger reminds us about the ethical power of bearing witness to the past and present - and the importance of passing on our memories of what we have witnessed into the future. As the curator of the Amherst History Museum, I want to think together about how we might all practice witnessing and memory sharing in our own lives and in our own place, and how the museum can support us all to do it together."--Diana Lembach Lempel
