Author Talk with Ellen Korman Mains

After the Holocaust, how do we not lose faith in each other—or in ourselves? In 2006, Ellen Korman Mains began a series of life-changing journeys to Poland to reconcile her own family’s traumatic legacy with the question of basic goodness. On Yom HaShoah, Ellen will read excerpts from her memoir, “Buried Rivers: A Spiritual Journey into the Holocaust,” and share her exploration of inherited trauma, crossing religious boundaries, and the invisible presence of our ancestors.

The daughter of Polish-born Jews who survived the Holocaust, Ellen is a long-time Boulder resident who continues to spend time each year in Poland, teaching, promoting dialogue, and connecting with her roots.
