Kristallnacht Commemoration (admission free day): Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 6:30 pm at The Florida Holocaust Museum and virtually via our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TheFHM
The Florida Holocaust Museum’s Annual Kristallnacht Commemoration features a commemorative service and candle lighting followed by our keynote speaker and author Rachael Cerrotti. Cerrotti is an award-winning photographer, writer, educator and audio producer. Her work explores the intergenerational impact of war and memory. She is currently the Inaugural Storyteller in Residence for USC Shoah Foundation where she produces and co-hosts The Memory Generation podcast.
In 2019, Cerrotti released her first podcast – We Share the Same Sky. It was the first-ever narrative podcast based on a Holocaust survivor’s testimony and tells the story of her decade-long journey to retrace her grandmother’s war story. We Share the Same Sky was listed as one of the best podcasts of the year by HuffPost, A Reader’s Pick by Vulture Magazine and as a “Show We Love” by Apple Podcasts. In August 2021 she released her memoir by the same name.
Cerrotti will discuss her grandmother’s story and how she shares her legacy today. Cerrotti will be available to sign books at the close of the event.
To encourage social distancing, seating at the Museum is limited. RSVPs for those attending in person are required.
