To Look a Nazi in the Eye:

A Teen's Account of a War Criminal Trial

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 12:30pm

To Look a Nazi in the Eye: A Teen's Account of a War Criminal Trial is the true story of 19-year-old Jordana Lebowitz’s time at the trial of Oskar Groening, known as the bookkeeper of Auschwitz, a man charged with being complicit in the death of more than 300,000 Jews. A granddaughter of Holocaust Survivors, Jordana was still not prepared for what she would see and hear. Listening to Groening’s testimony and to the Holocaust Survivors who came to testify against him, Jordana came to understand that by witnessing history she gained the knowledge and legitimacy to be able to stand in the footsteps of the Survivors who went before her and pass their history – her history – on to the next generation.

Kathy Kacer’s books have won many awards, including the Silver Birch, the Red Maple, the Hackmatack, and the Jewish Book Award. A former psychologist, Kathy now travels the globe speaking to children and adults about the importance of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive. Kathy lives in Toronto.

Jordana Lebowitz attended the trial of Oskar Groening in 2015. She is dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and set up a Nazi cattle car exhibit at her university that was seen by more than 2,000 people. From Toronto, she has worked for Holocaust organizations in Australia and California and travels frequently.
