Mark Klempner is a historian, memoirist, and social commentator. The son of an immigrant who barely escaped the Holocaust, Klempner spent nearly a decade talking with and getting to know the Dutch rescuers in order to write The Heart Has Reasons. Klempner grew up in New York, and attended Cornell University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa in 1997, and winning a J. William Fulbright Fellowship. In 2000, he received an M.A. in folklore studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Klempner’s articles have appeared internationally in professional publications such as the Oral History Reader, as well as in the Christian Science Monitor and other mainstream newspapers. He has also been featured as a radio commentator and interviewee on NPR and other broadcast media. As a public speaker, Klempner has given presentations at the Library of Congress, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Humanities Center, and at hundreds of churches, synagogues, and educational institutions throughout the U.S. Online, Klempner blogs for the Huffington Post and has contributed to Commondreams.org and Alternet.org.
