Book club – with Arizona Jewish Historical Society

November 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm

Free and open to all seniors!

Discussion led by Ruth Callahan on the book Mendelssohn is on the Roof by Jiri Weil.  The book is available through Amazon.

Julius Schlesinger, aspiring SS officer, has received orders to remove from the roof of Prague’s concert hall the statue of the Jewish composer Felix Mendelssohn. But which of the figures adorning the roof is the Jew? Remembering his course on racial science, Schlesinger instructs his men to pull down the statue with the biggest nose. Only as the statue they have carefully chosen begins to topple does he recognize that it is not Mendelssohn; it is Richard Wagner.

Participants are strongly encouraged to read the books prior to the discussion. The author of book is not in attendance.
