Registration required, for Temple Beth El members only
Join Dr. Schreiber for a bagel breakfast and discussion of her book, Elaine Black Yoneda. All Temple Beth El members are welcome – whether you have read the book or simply want to learn more about how a Jewish woman came to spend time in a concentration camp in California during WWII.
Dr. Rachel Schreiber is an artist, designer, and cultural historian, Executive Dean of Parsons School of Design and author of a new non-fiction Jewish love story. Her book Elaine Black Yoneda: Jewish Immigration, Labor Activism, and Japanese American Exclusion and Incarceration tells of Elaine and her family during World War II and their voluntary incarceration at a Japanese American internment camp. After their incarceration, Elaine and her husband Karl became active in the campaigns to designate Manzanar a federally recognized memorial site, for redress and reparations to Japanese Americans, and in opposition to nuclear weapons.
