TxWes Reads presents The Boxcar: Piecing Together History
Event Category: 

Join us during Free Period in the Orientation Room as Ron Siebler, Historic Preservationist, shares his experience about his project of restoring a “Nazi-era boxcar used by the German Army during WWII.”  The boxcar is part of the Holocaust/Shoah wing permanent exhibition at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum.  Light refreshments will be served.

This is part of our TxWes Reads One Book program. The purpose of the TXWES Reads program is to bring the Texas Wesleyan community together and to encourage students, staff and faculty to join together to read and discuss the same book.

The Book Thief is a fictional account of a young girl growing up in Nazi Germany before and during the Second World War. It was published in 2005 and became an international bestseller, was translated into 63 languages, and made into a movie in 2013. It was nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
