Professor Peter Filkins will read from and discuss his authorized biography H.G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds. The book tells an engaging story of how Adler lived through his times; how his times lived through him; and his effort to maintain human dignity amid systematic oppression, political corruption, and insufferable duress. A survivor of Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, and two other concentration camps, H.G. Adler (1910-1988) published two dozen books of poetry, fiction, social science, history, and religion that detail the story of the Holocaust and analyze its influence on our world today. In addition to producing seminal, pioneering works on the Holocaust, Adler also earned his renown as a radio essayist in postwar Germany, a last representative of the Prague Circle of literature headed by Kafka, and a key contributor to the prosecution in the trial of Adolf Eichmann. This event is free and open to the public.Daniel Arts Center at Simon’s Rock, 84 Alford Rd., Great Barrington, MA.  email hidden; JavaScript is required   Phone: 413-644-4400
