"I Want You to Know We're Still Here" with Esther Safran Foer

In partnership with the Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre

I Want You to Know We’re Still Here is a beau­ti­ful­ly writ­ten account of a relent­less jour­ney to the genealog­i­cal — indeed geo­graph­ic — core of fam­i­ly trau­ma to uncov­er mys­ter­ies buried in the mass graves of an old-world shtetl. The mem­oir con­cludes with a new-world birth — a grand­son who car­ries Foer fam­i­ly his­to­ry in his name and soul — sym­bol­iz­ing the promise of the next gen­er­a­tion. In uncov­er­ing the past, Foer demon­strates how mem­o­ry can, ther­a­peu­ti­cal­ly, fill an aching absence.
