Join the author Lisa Gruenberg for a virtual reading and discussion of his second-generation Holocaust memoir, “My City of Dreams”. This event, hosted by the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics and its Medicine and the Muse Program, will be hosted by Laurel Braitman, director of writing and storytelling for the program and author of the New York Times bestselling “Animal Madness” .

In “My City of Dreams”, Gruenberg, confronted with the flashbacks and nightmares of her elderly father, begins to inhabit the story of her sister Mia, who disappeared in Germany in 1941 when she was only 15 years old. After her father’s death in 2005, Gruenberg traveled to Vienna, Germany, and returned to her childhood to explore this lost landscape and trace the fate of Mia, their extended family, friends and neighbors. Using letters, old photographs, primary source documents and her father’s writings, she weaves her story with theirs.
