Elizabeth Petuchowski shares her story of growing up as a young Jewish girl in Germany amidst the rise of Nazism, fleeing to England where she experienced the WWII outbreak, and immigrating to the US.

Elizabeth Petuchowski grew up as a young Jewish girl in Germany amidst the rise of Nazism and mandatory antisemitism. She witnessed Hitler coming to power in the 1930s as a schoolgirl in Germany and experienced the outbreak of World War II in September 1939 from England where she and her immediate family had fled. Elizabeth resumed her studies and attended university in England during the WWII years before immigrating to America.

Elizabeth will share photographs from her life's journey, talk about her experience living through these historical events, reflect on the effects these universally known events had on her life, and read from her memoir, Where From and Where To: One of the Last Self-Told German Jewish Life Stories. Robin Judd, Associate Professor in The OSU Department of History with expertise in Jewish History and Immigration History, will facilitate the conversation. Masks are preferred at this program for in-person attendees.

Thanks to Gramercy Books for partnering with us on this special program and for making books available for sale at the event.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
