Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Kluger’s latest work, Hamlet’s Children, is a historical novel set in German-occupied Denmark during the Holocaust. Seen through the eyes of a young American’s assimilation into the world of his Danish relatives and their friends, the characters cunningly attempt to subvert the Germans’ iron grip on their kingdom by keeping their Jewish neighbors out of the Nazis’ murderous hands. Vibrant with memorable moments and fraught with tension, this artfully crafted narrative, both heartbreaking and uplifting, is a testament to the human spirit in its bleakest hours. Kluger is joined in conversation by Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award winning-actor Julianna Margulies with a book signing to follow. They will discuss the book and its connection to the Museum’s exhibition Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark, about the incredible story of the Danish rescue, which opens in October 2023.
