April 02, 2023 View Website

As part of the programming for their Auschwitz: Not Long Ago. Not Far Awayexhibition, please join them for a special in-person event as they share a collection of heirloom recipes and stories from Auschwitz- Birkenau survivors. They will be joined at this event by Tova Friedman, a survivor and cookbook contributor, as well as the executive director of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation, Dr. Maria Zalewska, the author of the cookbook.

Tickets to the event are $40 and include a handful of desserts made by our chef using the recipes from the book (coffee and tea also provided). Copies of Honey Cake & Latkes: Recipes from the Old World by the Auschwitz-Birkenau Survivors (publish date: September 13, 2022) are available for sale during the reservation process, as are copies of Tova Friedman’s New York Times bestselling memoir, The Daughter of Auschwitz (publish date: September 1, 2022). Tova Friedman will be signing copies of both books following the program.

Honey Cake & Latkes is more than a cookbook; this collection of heirloom recipes conveys Auschwitz-Birkenau survivors’ stories through the mnemonic lens of cooking and food. Collected and edited during the pandemic, this book has over 110 recipes accompanied by survivors’ pre-war recollections and post-liberation memories. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation. The Daughter of Auschwitz is a powerful memoir by one of the youngest survivors of Auschwitz, Tova Friedman, following her childhood growing up during the Holocaust and surviving a string of near-death experiences in a

Jewish ghetto, a Nazi labor camp, and Auschwitz. During six months of incarceration in Birkenau, Tova witnessed atrocities that she could never forget, and experienced numerous escapes from death. She is one of a handful of Jews to have entered a gas chamber and lived to tell the tale.
