Beth Luers to Speak at the Oakland Library


The Oakland Branch of the Ruth Enlow Library will host Beth Luers, retired Professor of Humanities at Garrett College, for a discussion about her recently published book, Creating Light, on Wednesday, March 22, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. “This book tells the story of the purpose-filled lives of three Holocaust survivors – Leo Bretholz, Martin Gray, and Thomas Buergenthal – and provides lessons in moving forward and brotherhood,” said Luers. “I will speak about how I came to know these three amazing men who have strived to make the world a more humane place when that same world tried to kill them,” said Luers. “I also will talk about how I came to write a book, the last thing I thought I would ever do.”

This event is free and open to the public. To register, contact Bonnie at 301-334-3996 x117 or bonnie@relib.net.

Copies of Creating Light are available as an eBook from Amazon and Sentia Publishing. Printed books are available from Sentia Publishing. The Oakland Library has ordered three copies of the book for patrons to borrow. Also, books can be purchased through The Book Mark’et in Oakland. Anyone interested should call the store at 301-334-8778 about ordering a copy of the book.

“Royalties from the book that normally would go to the author will instead go directly to Jewish Community Services in Baltimore, Maryland in Leo Bretholz's name to help survivors with rent and medical assistance,” noted a library spokesperson.
