City of Light (Theodore and Aimee Bikel)
THE CITY OF LIGHT by Theodore Bikel with Aimee Ginsburg Bikel, illustrated by Noah Phillips (Trade Hardcover Original; November 5, 2019; $16.95; ISBN 978-1942134619).
The beloved late movie actor, folk singer, musician, composer, unionist, and political activist poignantly recounts moments from his childhood in Vienna, when he experienced and witnessed anti-Semitism as Nazi influence grew—and dreamed of a Jewish superhero, Judah Maccabee who could rescue the Jews. The book is based on a story commissioned by Moment Editor-in-Chief Nadine Epstein that was published in the magazine and read aloud on NPR’s Hanukkah Lights program in 2014.
‘This book is a treasure, filled with stories of remarkable Jewish women. Some of the names will sound familiar, many are not; all deserve more attention for their courage and determination. It‘s great reading for girls—and boys—eager for role models--and the rest of the family too!’
ANN F. LEWIS, FORMER WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR

Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) is best known as the author of Night, survivor of Auschwitz and a powerful, enduring voice of the Holocaust. A recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he was a hero of human rights, professor and author of more than 50 books.
Among his accomplishments, Wiesel co-founded Moment Magazine with Leonard Fein in 1975 to be a place of conversation for America’s Jews. For Editor-in-Chief Nadine Epstein, he became a mentor and friend after she took over the magazine in 2004.
In this striking volume, Epstein shares her memories of Wiesel and brings together 36 reflections from friends, colleagues and others who knew him—including his son Elisha Wiesel, Michael Berenbaum, Wolf Blitzer, Father Patrick Desbois, Ben Kingsley, Ronald S. Lauder, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Kati Marton, Itzhak Perlman, Natan Sharansky, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Oprah Winfrey and Ruth Wisse. The foreword is by the world-famous British Rabbi Jonathan Sacks and the afterword is by Ted Koppel.
To celebrate this humanitarian and keep his inspiration alive, Epstein presents readers with a visual history of Wiesel’s life and examines the influence of his seminal book, Night. This chilling story of the Holocaust has already gripped the souls of millions of readers. To reinforce this legacy, Epstein provides lively conversations with teenagers about Night and offers discussion questions. The book includes more than 100 photographs.
