Professor Emerita’s Book to be on C-SPAN Book TV

CSPAN 2’s Book TV will included Professor Emerita of History Carolyn Happer’s book, “Chosen for Destruction: The Story of a Holocaust Survivor,” in the program’s coverage of Raleigh, North Carolina. The North Carolina-focused programs will run during the weekend of June 15-16., 2013

"Chosen for Destruction: The Story of a Holocaust Survivor" tells the life story of Morris Glass, Happer's co-author. Glass is a Holocaust survivor who was 11 years old when the Nazis invaded Poland. He spent four and a half years in ghettos in his hometown and in Lodz (the longest lasting ghetto), two months in Auschwitz-Birkenau, and eight months in five camps that were part of the Dachau camp system. During those years, he lost his youth, his home, and his father, mother, and two sisters. Out of 42 close family members only he, his brother, and a first cousin survived.

The Book TV segment is scheduled for Saturday, June 15 at noon. To view Book TV’s full schedule for the weekend, visit booktv.org. For more details on the special coverage of Raleigh, click here.
