About the Author

I was born in communist Poland after the war, where I lived with my family until the late 1960s. Before leaving for America I attended a Jewish High School, in Wroclaw. I graduated from CCNY with a BA in Anthropology. I received my MA in Archaeology from UCLA, and was awarded a grant, allowing me to conduct research and travel to Poland and Israel. Meeting professor and writer, Elie Wiesel, through the Department of Jewish Studies at CCNY, I realized the importance of Holocaust survivors stories. I insisted my mother write down her incredible accounts she shared with me. Ultimately, I addressed the trauma of growing up in the shadows of Holocaust aftermath and how this trauma is transferred between generations. For me, the 2G, I had no way of knowing, but the seed for writing Memory is Our Home was planted in my childhood. Looking back in time, I know now that my entire life was a preparation, to be a memorial candle. I assumed the burden of my parents emotional world and I became the link between the past and the future. This history is embedded deep in my memory and my soul, it is part of my DNA.
