Holocaust remembrance

April 12, 2009

The Howard County Central Library, 10375 Little Patuxent Parkway, will observe Holocaust Remembrance Day at 7 p.m. April 21.

Edith Cord will recount the story of a youth spent hiding from the Nazis. Born in Vienna in 1928, Cord was the second child of observant Jewish parents.

She and her family left Vienna for Italy in 1937 and subsequently fled to France, where her father was arrested as an enemy alien.

Eventually, her father and brother were sent to Auschwitz, and Cord lived hidden in Vichy France.

Her book, Becoming Edith: The Education of A Hidden Child, will be available for purchase and signing.

Book reviewer and collector Eleanor Heldrich will present "A Movable Feast: The Book as Art," a demonstration of the ways that paper engineers make books move, at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Central Library.

The event celebrates National Library Week.
