Short biography
Mark Klempner is a folklorist, historian, 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: Holocaust Rescuers and Their Stories of Courage. 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 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 mainstream newspapers like the Christian Science Monitor and the Baltimore Sun, and progressive religious periodicals such as Tikkun and the National Catholic Reporter. He has also been featured as a commentator on Morning Edition, and has been interviewed on Air America, Prime Time Radio, NRP, and other broadcast media. Online, Klempner is a blogger for The Huffington Post and has also contributed to Alternet.org and CommonDreams.org.
