On-Site Book & Author: “Not a Real Enemy “

August 31, 2023 | 6:30pm CDT

9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL 60077

A moving tribute by the son of Holocaust Survivors to his parents, Not a Real Enemy tells the true story of Ervin Wolf and his family as the fascist tide of Eastern Europe took hold of Hungary. The book weaves together a narrative that illustrates the Wolf family’s comfortable upper-class life as Hungarian Jews at the turn of the 20th century, into the turmoil of World War II, and through the death camp of Auschwitz Birkenau, where Ervin lost his parents. 

Be sure to join us for a live conversation with Not a Real Enemy’s author, Robert Wolf, to hear more about his family’s story and Ervin Wolf’s tale of cloak-and-dagger adventures, daring escape in the dead of night, terrifying oppression, tragedy, and triumph. The conversation will be moderated by speaker, facilitator, writer, and media producer JD Gershbein.

Reservations required.
