REQUEST FOR MATERIAL FOR COMMEMORATIVE BOOKLET (from Gabriele)
Please send this form together with your work!!!!! In the past Child Survivors have had the opportunity to send in their creative work for a Commemorative Booklet. Once again, this year, I will gladly compile and edit one for this upcoming conference. So, my dear siblings, send me your contributions in the form of a story, an essay, a poem, a drawing, a photo of a painting or sculpture, or any other creation relating to your experiences, to your memories, or to an aspect of the conference. One of our siblings, Ben Klein, had the following idea which you can add to your story or send in by itself, as you like: ”Often our existence and/or survival hinged on one small event over which we had no control. Ben sends an example: In Holland the Nazis ordered all the older people out of the coastal area. My
grandparents had to move out of their house and my family moved in. Our next-door neighbors were active in the Dutch Resistance – they saved us. Therefore we survived.”

If YOU have a story like that – shorter or longer – perhaps you would like to send it in. But there is NO
THEME; you may send in whatever work you like. Please see below some of the “rules” which we have used in the last few years: Your written entries must be in English (my computer is monolingual!), typewritten and no longer than three (3) pages, please. All photos will be returned after publication. PHOTOS: please send only either original copies or copies made by a photographer. (Preferably the latter, so that nothing original gets hurt.) XEROX copies do NOT copy well at all. Any color photos will be reproduced in black and white, because otherwise they are too expensive. If you send your work by e-mail, please add your name, full address, phone number and e-mail address. THANK YOU !!

DEADLINE: AUGUST 1, 2008 NO LATE WORK ACCEPTED!!!!!

Send to: R. Gabriele S. SILTEN, Claremont Manor; 650 West Harrison Ave.,
Claremont, CA 91711 –

ATTENTION!!! : THIS IS A NEW ADDRESS.
NEW phone number: (909) 625-2392.
