Description:

The Crooked Mirror: A Memoir of Polish-Jewish Reconciliation

Louise Steinman
In conversation with Rev. Ed Bacon, rector, All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena

What happens when formerly estranged peoples look at their entwined history together? After attending a Zen Peacemaker retreat at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2000, Steinman embarked on a decade-long exploration—into her own family’s history in a small Polish town—as well as an immersion in the exhilarating and discomforting, sometimes surreal, yet ultimately healing process of Polish-Jewish reconciliation taking place in today’s democratic Poland.
