Book Launch: A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee by Miriam Hoffman

November 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Playwright and World War II survivor, Miriam Hoffman, will celebrate the launch of her new book “A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee,” with a short discussion and book signing at PowerHouse Arena in Brooklyn.

“A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee” is an intellectual and emotional journey describing Hoffman’s experience as a young refugee girl growing up in a post-war DP (Displaced Person) refugee camp in Ulm, Germany, after the destruction of World War II. It’s an engaging non-fiction tale of war and survival, seen through the eyes of a young Miriam and her father. The memoir chronicles her ability to triumph through a five-year sojourn in a DP camp leading to her immigration to the Bronx. Hoffman’s personal tale captures the beauty and importance of keeping the Yiddish language and culture alive during the twentieth-century, despite countless attempts to destroy it.
