BENEATH WHITE STARS

   

BENEATH WHITE STARS:
HOLOCAUST PROFILES IN POETRY

Original narrative poems, historical accounts, with black and white, pen and ink illustrations.

Beneath White Stars: Holocaust Profiles In Poetry features Holly’s narrative poetry about real people from the Holocaust whom she has known personally or whose stories she has taught. Melding historical detail and keen insights with the grace of poetry, she brings to life a wide variety of individuals struggling against the horrors of the Holocaust. In these pages children are sent from home to face new lands alone, teens risk their lives to resist in ghettos and forests, prisoners rise above the miseries of ghettos and concentration camps through art, and diplomats and clergy employ their wiles to save all those they can. Brief biographical sketches, maps, and a personalized timeline further animate these courageous individuals.

Illuminated by Byron Marshall’s pen and ink drawings, Beneath White Stars: Holocaust Profiles in Poetry opens a unique window on bright lights that shone even in the darkest of times.  

 

The discussion will be led by the author, Holly Mandelkern, and Mitchell Bloomer, former Education Director of the Holocaust Museum in Maitland, Florida.

Wednesdays from 6:30 p.m.to 7:30 p.m.

January 12, 19, 26 and February 2

Books will be available in the St. Richard’s church office for a cost of $20. They can also be purchased on Amazon.

You can purchase this book through the Amazon Smiles program.

Welcome to St. Richard's Episcopal Church!
 
All are welcome at the table of God
Every man woman and child.
For Christ brings peace to all,
Tearing down every hostile wall.
So that the many may become one,
One heart, one family, one new humanity.
 
For God who is love, and Christ who is all and in all
Show no partiality and make no distinction.
So neither race nor class, gender nor sexuality,
Politics nor religion, personality nor nationality,
Count for us, or against us.
 
The light of Christ enlightens all:
Christ the prisoner and the naked,
Christ the hungry and the sick,
Christ the thirsty and the stranger,
Christ the other.
 
May God’s spirit hover over our chaos,
Our hatred and our indifference.
Descend in our hearts with love and pleasure.
Blow us out into the world to listen and serve.
And set us ablaze to forgive and reconcile.
For all are welcome at the table of God,
Every man, woman and child.
 
Welcome to St. Richard’s Episcopal Church!!!
