6:00 PM Book Signing: Lou Pechi, Author of I Am Lubo I Am Lubo, is a true story of growing up, before, during, and after the Holocaust. It tells about a child's struggle, not only to survive, but also to keep his true identity throughout those difficult years.This is an inspirational story that needs to be told.

The story narrated through the eyes of Lubo, a young boy, who fascinated by the all the happenings is unaware of the dangers that surround him. Despite all the fear, humiliation, difficulties of constant movement, changes of identity, separation from his parents, Lubo remains upbeat and positive.

The German bombing of Belgrade, and the brutal prosecution of the Jews in Croatia that followed, shatter Lubo's pre-war idyllic life in Zagreb, Croatia. To save their lives Lubo's parents flee to Italy. Not knowing what awaits them, they leave seven year old Lubo with his aunt, married to his Catholic uncle. Two years later, at the age of eight someone informs the Nazis and he is arrested and ready to be sent to the concentration camp in Germany. Through intervention of friends and relatives he is released six hours before the scheduled convoy departure and smuggled to his parents in Italy. The family relative safety in Treviso, Italy is broken by the German invasion that forces them to flee again to Rome, where the Allies eventually liberate them. After the liberation, Lubo returns to Communist Yugoslavia, emigrates to Israel, and finally arrives to the United States.

As the number of Holocaust survivors shrinks daily their memories will be lost. This is one of the many stories about the Holocaust that has an urgency to be told. It differs from others, since it shows the triumph of a child's spiritual and physical survival and the goodness of many people who risk their lives to save his. We will begin with a presentation and Q&A with Mr Pechi at 6:00 PM followed by an opportunity to purchase your own copy and have them signed by the author.
