CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Howard Reich, arts and jazz critic for the Chicago Tribune and child of Holocaust survivors, will present the fifth annual Norman Cohn Family Holocaust Remembrance and Education Lecture at 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 15, in Sabin Hall, Room 002, on the UNI campus.

Reich will present excerpts from and discuss his film, "Prisoner of Her Past," based on his book "The First and Final Nightmare of Sonia Reich." The film documents his mother's late-onset PTSD resulting from her experiences during the Holocaust and Howard Reich's own journey to learn about his mother's story of survival. A question and answer period, book signing and reception will follow the lecture.

The Norman Cohn Family Annual Holocaust Remembrance and Education Lecture is made possible by the ongoing support of Norman Cohn, a native of Waterloo and a graduate of UNI.
