In Commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Simon Wiesenthal Center and The Breman Museum present a ZOOM book discussion

The Art of Inventing Hope offers an unprecedented, in-depth conversation between the world’s most revered Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, and a son of survivors, Howard Reich.

What had started as an interview assignment from the Chicago Tribune quickly evolved into a friendship and a partnership. Here Wiesel – at the end of his life – looks back on his ideas and writings on the Holocaust, synthesizing them in his conversations with Reich.

The insights on life, ethics, and memory that Wiesel offers, and Reich illuminates will not only help the children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors understand their painful inheritance, but will benefit everyone, young and old.

Howard Reich will be interviewed by Alison Pure-Slovin, Midwest Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center
