Holo­caust sur­vivor to speak about his book

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
