Allow me to reintroduce myself…visually

I realized that I jumped directly into the content and never gave you, the reader, any context.  Therefore I will introduce myself using the about me section – I was just called “The Beyonce of Men” (speaking of which I took the name of this post from a song by her husband (EXPLICIT LYRICS) http://

Me...being professional – that is me…being professional

“My name is Jack Goldberg (although my drivers license says Isaac Goldberg…long story) and I am a senior at Boston University studying public relations and American history. But I am much more than my major. I am a 6th generation Seattleite, a (be it small) part Irish, modern Orthodox Jew whose grandparents survived the Holocaust (one was one of 60 people of 1,000,000 to survive Treblinka). I call South Seattle, Washington my home (area code 98118) and I have got 3 sisters with no brothers. I have lived in Seattle, Israel, England, and Boston and each one has allowed me to learn something new.

I am passionate about a whole lot of things including:  politics, PR, communication, firefighting, music, movies, branding, the Presidential Youth Council, supporting the State of Israel, and the general art of delivering and writing speeches. These are the main things I will be writing about but by no means the only things.”

That sums me up to some extent. I will explain what these things mean in more depth as time goes on but I just wanted to give a brief overview of a)what I will be posting, b)what I care about right now (subject to change within about 12 hours), and c) what you can get me for Chanukah.

Below I will (attempt to) show a visual representation of myself:

So You Want To Write A Holocaust Book?

Sam and Esther Goldberg, my in-laws, survived the Holocaust and their story is truly remarkable. My journey to write a book telling their story will take me down dark alleys and through rays of light and hope. Through this blog, I hope to post ideas, memories and insights about the Holocaust, Esther and Sam, and humanity's struggle to come to grips with what happened in Europe between 1939 and 1945.
