Dr. Goldie Morgentaler will be at McMaster on June 9 to speak about her mother, writer Chava Rosenfarb’s three- volume novel, The Tree of Life, based on her experiences as a prisoner in the Lodz ghetto. Rosenfarb was one of the great Yiddish writers of the second half of the 20th century, and a survivor of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Called one of the seminal works of Holocaust literature, The Tree of Life is not widely known because it was originally published in Yiddish, and was not available in English until 2006.

Morgentaler is Professor of English at the University of Lethbridge.

When: Thursday, June 9, 2016, 4:30 p.m.

Where: Great Hall of the University Club (located in Alumni Memorial Hall), McMaster University
