Jonathan RosenThis absorbing, deeply moving memoir artfully dramatizes how children of survivors are pulled back by a powerful undertow of sorrow toward their parents, toward the past . . .
— New York Times
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.

An absorbing, deeply moving memoir.
Eva Fogelman author of Conscience and Courage
Joseph Berger follows in the tradition of Frank McCourt in being a master storyteller. He recounts a story that is both tragic and uplifting. His journalistic eye for detail will make readers cry, laugh, and never forget his family's saga....At last we have a second-generation voice of Holocaust refugees that defies stereotypes.

This family was referenced in the book,'The Long Road Home' by Ben Shephard. I was so interested in knowing the rest of the story of the Berger family I purchased this memoir written by the son. It is a fascinating story. Well written. Highly recommended.
