Talk | Tove Bamberger's Danish Rescue (in-person and online)


Tove Bamberger (nee Schonbaum) was born in Copenhagen in 1934 and raised as a secular Jew. When the Germans invaded Denmark in April 1940, life in the country continued largely unchanged until September 1943, when Hitler issued a deportation order for all Danish Jews. Tove's family, along with 95% of Danish Jews, fled to Sweden on a fishing boat. Tove attended a Danish school set up for the refugees in Sweden, and when the war ended her family returned to their home in Copenhagen. There, she married Niels Bamberger, who had experienced the same rescue and return. In 1955, after Tove's high school graduation, Tove and Niels immigrated, settling in Washington Heights, New York, where they raised two daughters. Tove will discuss her story of escape and return, her life in Sweden, and what her life was like after World War II.

Book Discussion | Far from the Rooftop of the World: Travels Among Tibetan Refugees on Four Continents (in-person and online)


In 2008, China's government cracked down on protests throughout Tibet, and Amy Yee, then a journalist for the Financial Times, found herself covering a press conference with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, his exile home in India. She never imagined a hug from the spiritual leader would spark a global, fourteen-year journey to spotlight the stories of Tibetans in exile. This "beautifully observed" (Peter Hessler, New Yorker writer) nonfiction narrative and travelogue is set in India - as well as Australia, Belgium and New York. It gives new insight into relationships between Tibetan and Chinese people, especially since Amy is herself Chinese American. This "marvelous book" (Paul A. Cohen, Harvard University) focuses on ordinary but extraordinary Tibetans and stories of people navigating between worlds and multiple identities; and preserving culture even in exile and amid forced migration.
