The Irish Jewish Museum is pleased to invite you to the book launch of Gerald and Sheila Goldberg of Cork: A Son’s Perspective by David Goldberg. Introduced by author Katherine Stafford
This book – a memoir and analysis of his parents – explores the inner workings of a man’s life and how these affect the outer aspect of the man. “This is the story of their lives, work and achievements as best I can tell it. It was a voyage of discovery, a tumultuous and fascinating journey which I pray has done them justice. It is about my parents, my own memories and those friends, and relations who have shared theirs with me” David Goldberg.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in 1945, David Goldberg was educated at Christian Brothers College in Cork, Trinity College and the King’s Inns, Dublin. His love of painting was often at war with his profession as a barrister and he practiced both at different stages of his life. While he grew up in Cork, and lived mostly thereafter in Dublin, he travelled extensively in Europe and the USA and later in South Africa.
