Holocaust survivor to speak about his book
Clemens Loew, author of “When the Birds Stopped Singing: Living with the Wounds of War,” will discuss his book starting at 3 p.m. Sunday at Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley, 243 Albany Ave., Kingston.
Loew, a Holocaust survivor, will read excerpts from the book.
The book recounts his life as a survivor of the Holocaust, detailing his terrifying plight as a young boy hiding in Polish villages under false papers.
The book also details Loew’s protected years within the walls of a Catholic convent under the sympathetic watch of nuns.
After World War II, Loew and his mother sailed on a troop transport to America.
In the book, Loew tells about his boyhood adventures in the United States and his various entanglements in finding love and hope amid new relationships.
