 I received this book as a give-away from the publisher.  Thank you!  Louise Steinman wrote this memoir of Polish-Jewish Reconciliation from her own struggle as the descendant of a participant in the atrocities lived through in Poland before and during the Second World War. On the face of it, this seems simple.  In reality, doing a successful reconciliation is anything but simple, and Louise Steinman outlines the proper steps to make this horrendous mend in the fabric of Polish life as seamlessly as possible.  We southerners, and those of us in the melting pots of America, all the rival feuds instilled over the years from misunderstandings or misinformation or just basic life vision, be it accurate or read through a crooked mirror, need to approach our differences in the way outlined in this insightful record of a true melding of hearts and understanding. It is possible to apologize and explain, to mourn and live again as neighbors and friends. I find that very encouraging to know, and am grateful for the insights I was able to take away from this memoir. Thank you, Ms. Steinman!
