NEW YORK, NY- October 30, 2014 - Baruch College and The Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center welcomes author Dr. Dori Katz for a discussion on her book, Looking For Strangers: The True Story of My Hidden Wartime Childhood, on Tuesday, November 4.

Katz is a Jewish Holocaust survivor who thought that her lost memories of her childhood years in Belgium were irrecoverable. But after a chance viewing of a documentary about hidden children in German-occupied Belgium, Katz realized that she might, in fact, be able to unearth those years. Looking for Strangers is the deeply honest record of her attempt to do so.

Dori Katz is a poet and author, and professor emerita of modern languages and literature at Trinity College. She is a translator of several books from the French and a poet. Her most recent collection of poems is Hiding in Other People’s Houses.

The event is free and open to the public.
