Join us for a very special talk with author Rabbi Joseph Polak
Sponsored by
The Lester Macklin Annual Yom HaShoah Program

In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, join us for a talk and
Q&A with Rabbi Joseph Polak, Child Survivor, and author of the nationally acclaimed book,
After the Holocaust the Bells Still Ring. This memoir is a fascinating portrait of mother and
child who miraculously survive two concentration camps; and then, after the war, battle
demons of the past, societal rejection, disbelief, and invalidation as they struggle to re-enter the
world of the living.

Rabbi Polak is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Health Law, Ethics & Human Rights at
Boston University School of Public Health and Rabbi Emeritus of the Hillel House at Boston
University. He also serves as Chief Justice of the Rabbinical Court of Massachusetts. In
addition to his many other accomplishments, Rabbi Polak was a good friend and study partner
of Elie Wiesel.
