The Book of Joseph

800 E. Grand Ave., Chicago, 60611 | directions
312.595.5600
by Karen Hartman
based on the life of Joseph A. Hollander and his family
directed by Barbara Gaines

Every family has its secrets. Richard Hollander’s remained in an unopened suitcase for fifteen years after the death of his parents. Inside, he found a collection of Swastika-stamped letters written during World War II by a family he never knew—his late father Joseph’s mother, three sisters, their husbands and children. Unable to convince the family to leave Poland, Joseph escaped to the United States where he fought from afar to save his family from annihilation at the hands of the Nazis, and to avoid deportation and death himself.
