Wednesday, Dec 9th at 7:30 pm Meryl Ain in conversation with Rabbi Susie Moskowitz
The Takeaway Men, tells the story of twin sisters, who, along with their parents, come to the U.S. from a DP Camp after the
Holocaust. In the years after World War II, they experience the difficulties of adjusting to American culture as well as the burgeoning fear
of the Cold War. As the girls get older, they start to wonder about their parents’ pasts, and they begin to demand answers.
The Takeaway Men explores the impact of immigration, Jewish identity, prejudice, secrets, and lies on parents and children
in mid-twentieth-century America.
Dr. Meryl Ain is a writer, author, and career educator. The Takeaway Men, her award-winning, debut novel, is the result of her life-long quest to learn more about the Holocaust, a thirst that was first triggered by reading The Diary of Anne Frank. She lives on Long Island with her husband, Stewart, a journalist.
