Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This group of nine autobiographical portraits written by German-Jewish women who fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 1940s to arrive in Brazil's tropical climate and culture shares a frank and frightening personal history that transcends editor Morris's careful contextualization. These well educated, middle class women write movingly of their journeys, sometimes from the voices of mature women and sometimes from the hopes and fears of themselves as young girls. The memoirs describe the horror of the death camps, the uprooting of family and friends, and the heady sights and sounds of a strange Rio de Janeiro in the early 1940s while underscoring the common themes of how Jewish women reacted to Nazi persecution, how they adapted, and how important these stories are to keeping the history of their families alive. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
