Geneva, NY— Jeannette Lander, writer-in-residence at Washington University, will present “Jewish Life in Germany after the Holocaust” 7 p.m. on Monday, February 19, in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library on the Hobart and William Smith campus.
Lander is an American who writes in German, but the lecture will be in English. Lander was born to Polish-Jewish immigrants and grew up in Atlanta before she emigrated to the Federal Republic of Germany, where she received her Ph.D. in English and German literature. She is a widely published novelist, radio journalist, and documentary film maker. Her most recent novel, Robert, is an East-West love story that deals with many aspects of contemporary Germany. Robert has been well received by German critics for its unique perception of German East-West relationships.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
