Overview

Amidst Latvians During The Holocaust by Edward Anders

"One of the best books of 2011"...A nerve-wracking saga in which life and death depend on a capricious fate...absorbing lucidity...vivid portraits...simple moral vision that resonates: "I became immunized against prejudice". A testament of remarkable clarity and humanity, wrung from dark experience.- KIRKUS REVIEWS.
***Surviving the Holocaust by a hair, Anders became a brilliant scientist. Part I is a memoir of his youth, including the Soviet and German occupations of Latvia. Part II discusses, with objectivity and precision, Latvian conduct during WWII. -ANDREW EZERGAILIS, Professor of History, Ithaca, NY.
***Anders survived by an outright lie (invented by his father) that his mother was a German foundling raised by a Jewish couple. His father was soon executed, but Edward and his mother bluffed their way through the nightmarish years of the German occupation (1941-1945). -MORRIS HALLE, Institute Professor of Linguistics, MIT, Cambridge, MA.
