TITLES, TOPICS and AUTHORS? As an education center, our work integrates a wide variety of subject areas – but we are always true to our mission “to promote respect for human dignity and diversity through education and to foster individual responsibility to work for justice and peace.” Each title selected will present one more aspect of our shared journey in human rights.
WHEN? One featured book / author each quarter, the day and time of the live stream will be posted on the Center’s Facebook page and emailed to all Center supporters. Don’t worry if you miss the live stream, the Conversation will be recorded and you’ll still be able to access it at another time.

“Survivor Café…feels like the book Rosner was born to write. Each page is imbued with urgency, with sincerity, with heartache, with heart…. Her words, alongside the words of other survivors of atrocity and their descendants across the globe, can help us build a more humane world.” —San Francisco Chronicle
As firsthand survivors of many of the twentieth century’s most monumental events—the Holocaust, Hiroshima, the Killing Fields—begin to pass away, Survivor Café addresses urgent questions: How do we carry those stories forward? How do we collectively ensure that the horrors of the past are not forgotten?
