Motivated by her Auschwitz-survivor mother's death to explore her world, psychologist Alteras (Hunter College, City College of New York) takes testimony from three generations of women and finds connecting themes in their life stories. She studies her mother's generation who grew up in Eastern Europe, her own cohorts who had immigrated to the US as youngsters, and their children who were born into an environ of heightened Jewish and feminist consciousness. The book concludes with reflections on shifts in, and survival of, Jewish identity. Includes photos of each generation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
