  1. Donna says:
    This is a matter of fact story of the lifelong effects of trauma and its impact on one s children One half is the first person story of a woman who survived the Holocaust the other, told by the daughter, is of her discovery over years of how that trauma deeply affected her own life and sense of self Sharing their stories with one another as they created the book deepened their love of and appreciation for one another as individuals.

    This is a powerful and excellent memoir In fact, one of the best memoirs I ve read in many years It is fascinating on many different levels from a historical perspective, from the transmission of trauma from one generation to the next, and from the inspirational words of Rasia who despite all odds took on a false identity and survived the Holocaust Her daughter s search for a religous identity is one that I could relate to even though I was raised as a Protestant Very deep and meaningful It is i [...]

    My book club LOVED this book It s a modern memoir as well as a historical one The daughter, Helen, writes so honestly and movingly about finding her own identity and trying not to live under the shadow of the Holocaust after hearing about it from her mother and her mother s relatives and friends Rasia writes unflinchingly of her past and what it s like to be a Holocaust survivor now, the things she thinks about and her life today One of the themes of the book is how we pass tradition on to our c [...]

  6. Noga Fisher says:
    The manner in which Rasia has told her story demonstrates the characteristics that must have helped her survive cool headedness, practicality, looking forward without looking back In some ways, it s chilling to be in that place with her and it makes the book even powerful as one thinks how unlikely it is that we would be able to survive in the same situation How does a person deal with a situation that is mad, mad, mad and still come out sane Great book, haunting book.

  7. Angelina Goodman says:
