Online Program: Book & Author: “We Share the Same Sky: A Memoir of Memory & Migration”
Winner of the Maine Literary Award, We Share the Same Sky: A Memoir of Memory & Migration, is a riveting and awe-inspiring debut novel by author and inaugural Storyteller in Residence for USC Shoah Foundation, Rachael Cerrotti. Cerrotti had always known her grandmother Hana was a Holocaust survivor, but what she discovered – an entire archive of her life – after Hana’s passing led to an incredible journey of discovery and self-discovery.
Join us for a live book discussion with Cerrotti as we follow her through a decade-long journey to weave together the thin threads of her family history in this intergenerational storytelling tour-de-force. The discussion will be moderated by Richard Salomon, Vice President of Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s Board of Directors.
“Readers should be grateful that Cerotti crossed those bridges and takes us along on this journey. She shows us how individuals can make big differences in the lives of others and how important it is to know our histories. Bearing witness has never been more important. Cerotti and her grandmother are powerful guides as to why these Holocaust stories matter.” —New York Journal of Books
