Florida: Author Daniel Mendelsohn May 7

Award-winning author, journalist and critic Daniel Mendelsohn will be hosted by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Broward County with the Soref Jewish Community Center at 7.30 p.m., May 7, in Plantation, Florida.

Mendelsohn's book, THE LOST: A Search for Six of Six Million (2006) is the story of his search to learn about family members who perished in the Holocaust. It was named among the year's best books by the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others.

Mendelsohn spent five years searching the globe for an answer to what really happened to his great uncle Shmiel, his wife and his four daughters during the Holocaust? He visited a dozen countries on four continents to track down Bolechow's remaining Jews.
