Event Co-Chairs Susan & Michael Eides invite you to attend our 2018 Annual Campaign Event:
An Evening with Jennifer Teege
Author of My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me: A Black Woman Discovers Her Family’s Nazi Past
Sunday, November 5 • 7:00PM
Dwares JCC • 401 Elmgrove Avenue, Providence
When Jennifer Teege, a German-Nigerian woman, grabbed a library book off the shelf, she had no idea that her life would be irrevocably altered. Recognizing photos of her grandmother in the book, she discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was a vicious Nazi commandant chillingly depicted in Schindler’s List. Ultimately, Teege’s resolute search for the truth leads her to the possibility of her own liberation. Join the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island as we hear Teege’s life-changing story, depicted in her memoir, My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me.
The New York Times bestselling memoir hailed as “UNFORGETTABLE” (Publishers Weekly) and “A STUNNING MEMOIR OF CULTURAL TRAUMA AND PERSONAL IDENTITY” (Booklist).
