Cerrrotti’s project is an intergenerational diary of love, loss, and the will to move forward in the face of uncertainty. For over a decade, Cerrotti has been retracing her grandmother’s Holocaust survival story and documenting the echoes of WWII. In the fall of 2019, she released her critically-acclaimed podcast, titled “We Share the Same Sky,” about this story. The podcast is now being taught in classrooms worldwide. “We Share the Same Sky” is Cerrotti’s first book. It won a Maine Literary Award, received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly, and was listed as a “best book of the month” by Apple Books.

“This is so much more than a book about the Holocaust,” said Ariana Neumann, author of “When Time Stopped.” “‘We Share the Same Sky’ takes us on an inspiring and heart-wrenching journey through time. Cerrotti is a magician. She masterfully interweaves threads of remembrance, sorrow, loss, and resilience, creating a beautiful tapestry of love and light.”

Cerrotti is an author, educator and documentary storyteller as well as the inaugural Storyteller in Residence for USC Shoah Foundation. She currently produces and hosts “The Memory Generation” podcast.

This program is part of the Camden Public Library’s “Discover History Month” series, presented annually in October and generously sponsored by The Smiling Cow. More information about other programs in the series can be found at
