Local publisher’s new Holocaust title previews at N.J. Governor’s Mansion

Last Sunday, Drumthwacket, the Governor’s Residence in Princeton, was the setting for a Holocaust book signing event and educational kickoff promotion for the latest classroom tool to educate students against the evils of bias, prejudice and intolerance. “Words for All Time: Students’ Letters to Holocaust Survivors,” presents these important lessons in students’ own words.

New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine was on hand to greet many of the thirty-five survivors featured in the book who, along with family members, attended the event to speak and autograph copies.

The book, a project of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education, was edited and published by former Jewish Times Managing Editor Rob Huberman. Rob compiled the book from among a thousand letters, poems and writings of New Jersey school children after a Holocaust survivor visited their school to tell students about their own childhood experiences at the hands of the Nazis.
