Holocaust Museum LA presents a virtual book talk with Lisa Gruenberg about her memoir, “My City of Dreams,” Tuesday, November 24, at 11 a.m.
In “My City of Dreams,” Gruenberg, confronted with her elderly father’s flashbacks, explores the life of her aunt Mia, who disappeared in Germany in 1941. After her father’s death, Gruenberg traveled to Vienna, Germany and Israel to explore this lost landscape and to trace the fates of Mia, their extended family, friends and neighbors.
Called “carefully researched and hauntingly written,” “My City of Dreams” is a story of both the past and the present. Its “luminous prose, make ‘My City of Dreams’ an important landmark in 21st century testimony of the Holocaust.”
Gruenberg is a physician, medical educator, and writer based in Boston. Her essays have been published in Ploughshares, Vital Signs, Hospital Drive, The Intima, a Journal of Narrative Medicine, and in The Michigan Quarterly Review. Her short story, “Keiskamma,” won the 2012 Artist Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
