Wednesday, August 11, 2021 2:00 pm Eastern Time (NY)
Please join us for a conversation with author Zsuzsa F. Varkonyi and
filmmaker Barnabas Toth as they discuss,"Those Who Remained." We are
announcing this program now so that you have enough tim order and read the book
prior to the presentation.
Jews who remained in Eastern Europe after the Holocaust and World War
II bore successive and unimaginable scourges—loss of family and
community, followed by communist repression. In the novel Those Who
Remained, Budapest psychotherapist Zsuzsa Varkonyi captures the grief,
hope, and endurance of this generation through two survivors who meet
in 1948. The novel has sold over 14,000 copies in the original
Hungarian and has also sold well in a German translation. The English
translation is now available (See Below).
The film based on this novel, Akik Maradtak (Those Who Remained), won
huge accolades at the 2019 Telluride Film Festival, and was
shortlisted for the 2019 Oscars. The film was shown extensively at
Jewish Film Festivals this past year. Though the film is not yet
available in movie theaters or streaming in the US, we love the book
and we think you will, too.
