THE END OF CAMELOT…Meet the woman whose grandfather filmed the 22 seconds.

On November 22, 1963, Abraham Zapruder left his office hoping for a glimpse of President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade.  A Russian Jewish immigrant who loved his home in America, Abraham was thrilled at the chance to see the young president in person – and perhaps be lucky enough to bring back a home movie.  The 26 seconds of Zapruder’s footage depicting the JFK assassination is now iconic.

Alexandra Zapruder began her career on the founding staff of the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.  She is the author of Salvaged Pages:  Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust, which is a National Jewish Book award winner.
