The Secret Concentration Camp Diary of Odd Nansen

February 23, 7 p.m. to  9 p.m.

Retired attorney and writer Timothy Boyce gives a talk and and leads a discussion of the World War II diary “From Day to Day,” a World War II concentration camp diary—one of only a handful ever translated into English—secretly written by Odd Nansen, a Norwegian political prisoner. The diary brilliantly illuminates Nansen’s daily struggle, not only to survive, but to preserve his sanity and maintain his humanity in a world engulfed by fear and hate. Boyce devoted years to getting the book back into print with full annotations.

Location: Nassau Presbyterian Church, 61 Nassau St.

Co-sponsored by the library, The Princeton Clergy Association, The Jewish Center and Nassau Presbyterian Church.

Presented with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
