Novelist Jonathan Safran Foer was appointed to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council.

President Obama tapped Foer, 35, also a New York University professor of creative writing, last Friday.

Foer’s debut novel, “Everything Is Illuminated,” dealt with the Holocaust and Ukraine during that era. His mother, Esther Safran Foer, directs Sixth and I, a historic synagogue in downtown Washington.

The Holocaust Memorial Council governs the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
