The Forward’s podcasts are the "Reporters' Roundtable," a weekly conversation between Forward staff about the most pressing issues in the Jewish world, hosted by Josh Nathan-Kazis, and "Yid Lit," a biweekly series interviewing acclaimed authors of literary fiction and nonfiction, hosted by Allison Yarrow. The "Reporters’ Roundtable" discusses topics like the growing rent protests in Israel, debate over the call to promote "peoplehood" within the Jewish community and the increasingly significant and yet fraught relationship between the Jewish and Latino communities in America. "Yid Lit" has interviewed more than 30 notable authors including National Book Critics Circle Award winner Darin Strauss, New Yorker magazine “20 under 40” fiction writers Gary Shteyngart and Nicole Krauss and British writer and Orange Prize winner Linda Grant.

Parent Is A Verb, with Barry and Chanie Holzer, offers advice on how to be a pro-active parent. Parenting is the most important job we get in life, with the least preparation. Many parents today are afraid to parent, and remain passive in their roles, leaving their children without the strong role models and sense of security that strong parenting provides. Our goal is to guide parents on their journey with insights into themselves and how they are perceived by their children, and a discussion of the opportunities parenting presents, so you can raise your children suffused with love, filled with optimism, and the resilience and strength to fulfill their potential. For questions or comments email Barry and Chanie Holzer at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is Vox Tablet, the weekly podcast of Tablet Magazine, the online Jewish arts and culture magazine that used to be known as Nextbook.org. Our archive of podcasts is available on our site, tablet2015.wpengine.com. Vox Tablet, hosted by Sara Ivry, varies widely in subject matter and sound -- one week it's a conversation with novelist Michael Chabon, theater critic Alisa Solomon, or anthropologist Ruth Behar. Another week brings the listener to "the etrog man" hocking his wares at a fruit-juice stand in a Jersualem market. Or into the hotel room with poet and rock musician David Berman an hour before he and his band, Silver Jews, head over to their next gig. Recent guests include Alex Ross, Shalom Auslander, Aline K. Crumb, Howard Jacobson, and the late Norman Mailer.

My mother, Malka Brandsdorfer, lived in a small Polish town near the German border. At the start of World War II she was married and had a young daughter. During the war her married name was Goldratt. She recorded her recollections of the Holocaust. The conditions in the town. Her family's struggle and the ghetto and camps she lived through. She tells of how many of her family died and how only she and one sister survived. Her recollections are told in Yiddish.
