Editorial Reviews

Suzie Fishbein
June Hersh offers us a rare gift in this cookbook. It is a testament to the Jewish human condition and its ability to transcend the past and move forward without forgetting. The survivors’ stories of deep love and great loss moved me. The understanding that for many, these recipes are all that remains of large, close, precious families takes my breath away. The juxtaposition of their brave stories with recipes only makes what they endured even more unimaginable. May the food of their memories nourish our spirits.
Suzie Fishbein, author of the Kosher by Design series of cookbooks
Dr.Ruth Westheimer
A book like this, that helps we Jews hand down this central aspect of our culture, the food that has nourished us through the ages, makes an important contribution to the on-going struggle to keep the Jewish faith alive. I am proud to be a part of it, especially because of the connection with the Museum of Jewish Heritage, on whose board I so proudly serve. - Dr. Ruth Westheimer
Cara De Silva
With the publication of this book a remnant of Jewish Life is snatched out of the fire that consumed so much. It ensures that the stories, recipes and kitchen rituals of those survivors of the Holocaust who appear in its pages can be carried forward for generations, not just as ancestral artifacts, but as vital components of our daily lives, carriers of tradition, ensurers of continuity, and symbols of triumph. - Cara De Silva, author/editor In Memory’s Kitchen: A Legacy for the Women of Terezin
Faye Levy
Reading this unique book of special memories, in which the hope of once again enjoying family favorites with loved ones kept survivors going, is an emotional experience. My mother was the lucky one in her family; she left Warsaw as a child before the Holocaust. "Recipes Remembered" is to me a conversation I never got to have. The book has a collection of traditional and modern Jewish recipes, and I'm looking forward to trying them, beginning with Bialys, Holishkes, Chremslach and Poppy Seed Cookies. - Faye Levy, author, Healthy Cooking for the Jewish Home and 1,000 Jewish Recipes.

This patiently gathered, touching and important archive of heirloom recipes with their

companion stories is a heartwarming must-have gem, that helps preserve the legacy of

the Jewish experience during World War II. (Gale Gand, nationally acclaimed pastry chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and television personality)

    I absolutely love this book. It is so much more than a cookbook

    I absolutely love this book. It is so much more than a cookbook, the history, the feeling of struggle,

    love and survival is shown not only in the recipes but the stories that go along with each recipe.
