The perfect book to challenge Book Club members

A treasure trove of important topics for discussion

Book Club members have inquiring minds and are critical thinkers.
The events and people featured in Ruta’s Closet offer opportunities for great discussion about ethical choices forced upon the Jewish authorities in the Shavl ghetto and its leaders. Their decisions were often terrifying and haunted individuals for the rest of their life – those that survived the Holocaust.
In the coming months, this section will be populated with thoughtful commentary, essays by learned historians, genealogists and ethicists, questions to ponder, suggested subject matter and, we hope, your observations.
