Monday Mishegos with Mom at JCAT

Miriam Hoffman, author, scholar, journalist, playwright and survivor presents her new book A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee

A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee, published by YI Press (a division of Yiddishkayt Initiative, Inc.), is an engaging non-fiction tale of war and survival, seen through the eyes of a young Miriam Hoffman and her father. Hoffman’s personal tale captures the beauty and importance of keeping the Yiddish language and Jewish culture alive during the twentieth-century, despite countless attempts to destroy it.
This intellectual and emotional journey describes Miriam Hoffman’s experience as a young refugee girl growing up in a post-war DP (Displaced Person) refugee camp in Ulm, Germany, after the destruction of World War II.
Hoffman’s son, Avi, is a multi-talented actor, director, comedian, singer and Jewish cultural activist. Together, they will be reading selections from Hoffman’s book. The evening will also include a discussion, Q&A and book signing.
