  • Gypsy Music Street presented by Roberta Dietzen

    Thursday, April 20th at 6:30 PM

    Gypsy Music Street is a memoir Roberta Dietzen wrote after her mother Rezsi Lehrer, a Holocaust survivor, died in 2007. It is a family history about love, irrevocable loss, and the endless traumatic ramifications of the Holocaust that continue to resonate with the following generations.  Dietzen provides a fascinating look inside the rich Jewish culture of Eastern Europe that was largely destroyed in WWII. She also shares the adventures she experienced in 2008, when she made an extraordinary roots trip and traveled to Budapest, Ukraine and Israel, a moving and memorable journey that she describes as the highlight of her life.
