“One Museum, One Book” Book Club: “Train”
Over ten days in 1943 Berlin, six teenagers witness and try to escape the Nazi round-ups. Train, authored by Danny M. Cohen, is based on real events and inspired by hidden stories of Nazi genocide. Giving voice to the unheard victims of Nazism — the Roma, the disabled, intermarried Jews, homosexuals, political enemies of the regime — this thriller changes how we think about Holocaust history.
“Train is an essential read for Holocaust and Genocide educators, students, and anyone who believes in the profound power of brilliant storytelling, the resilience of the human spirit, and the need to shed light on and bring a voice to the often shadowed narratives of the Holocaust.” – Kelley Szany, Vice President of Education & Exhibitions, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
