Overview

Yaakov Reinbach's odyssey from his birth in a displaced persons camp in Germany, through growing up and living in the United States, and finally setting up a home in Israel, may not be typical of all children of Holocaust survivors. Likewise all children of Holocaust survivors did not necessarily have the same personal experiences or develop the same sensitivities he did.
However, his descriptions of the difficulties he had communicating with his father, his contact with the world of youthful rebellion in the 1960s, his brushes with anti-Semitism, his fateful meetings with charismatic rabbis and his growing awareness of the importance of Judaism for his personal life, will strike a chord with many readers.
Hardbitten Memories: At the Blink of an Eye stands as an authentic testament of a child of Holocaust survivors coming of age in America and coming to terms with his parents' past. Comments by Dr. Robert Rozett, Director of the Libraries, Yad Vashem, The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority, in Jerusalem.

    Second generation insight

    After reading Hardbitten Memories, I felt a variety of emotions. I laughed, cried, smiled and reflected, it was terrible what happened to two holocaust survivors who had gone through such terrible tragedies before, the Author opened the door to let readers feel the emotions of growing up as a child of Holocaust Survivors, there were so many stories in one book to think about, I wanted to know more and read more I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be uplifted by the Authors determination to end up where he and his family belonged.
