Holocaust Artist, Jewish Author Host Learner's Lunch


Author Fred Amram and artist Sandra Brick are the featured guests at Temple Israel’s next Learner’s Lunch on Wednesday, April 19.

Amram is author of the recently published “We’re in America Now: A Survivor’s Stories,” a book that documents his childhood growing up in Nazi Germany, his family’s immigration to the U.S. in 1939, and his “coming of age” in New York City.

Brick is preparing an exhibition of her Holocaust inspired art titled “Lest We Forget” for the Duluth Art Institute at the end of April.

Socializing begins at 11:30 a.m., followed by lunch at noon and Amram’s and Brick’s talk at 12:30 p.m. – all in the synagogue social hall. Please RSVP to the Temple Office by calling 724-8857 or e-mailing admin@jewishduluth.org.

Amram’s book is for sale in the office. Cost is $20.
