London Jewish Book Week Event with Michael Frank
With nearly a century behind her, Stella Levi never spoke in detail about her past, until essayist Michael Frank visited her Greenwich Village apartment to ask about the Juderia in Rhodes, where she was part of a Sephardic Jewish community that was deported in its entirety to Auschwitz.
In the resulting book, a Wall Street Journal Top 10 of 2022, Stella reveals what it was like to grow up in an extraordinary place at an extraordinary time — and to construct a life after that place vanished. The Mighty Franks author discusses her story and their transformative friendship in a conversation chaired by historian and author of Uprooted, Lyn Julius.
