Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Packed with emotion, descriptive and introspective, this powerful and sweetly melancholic memoir, brilliantly written by Joseph Berger, is a remarkable tribute not only to his parents but to an entire generation of Holocaust survivors who, in spite of the burden of suffering they carried from Europe and its legacy of hatred and violence, succeeded in rebuilding their lives and dreams.” Elie Wiesel
“Gripping and beautifully written…Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Memorable…A fine addition to the literature of the Holocaust and a good account of recent American history.” Kirkus Reviews
