A forty-year recollection of love and loss, of hopes and dreams for a better world, it provides richly-textured accounts of the physical and emotional lives of Jews in Warsaw and of survival during World War II throughout Russia. This book, narrated in a compelling, unique voice through two generations, is the proverbial candle needed to keep memory alive.

Review:

"This book is such a tremendous accomplishment. The small details of Eibuszyc's mother's survival constantly amazed me. Powerful in its simplicity, the pages are all about the smallest things--the details about finding shelter, surviving cold and hunger, and how much a person can take. ... The importance of not forgetting, or ensuring that the Jewish legacy survives, that the Jewish culture and contribution to Poland are not erased."--Marcy Dermansky, Author of Bad Marie

Rarely has a book been written that pencils so bleak a portrait of the Poland that had been cloaked in the secrecy of life under Germany's iron fist. Even for those who lived those years in the rest of occupied Europe, it presents an unfamiliar, stark, black-and-white vision of hell.--Rudy Rosenberg, author of "And Somehow We Survive"

A poignant chronicle of one woman's harrowing journey across the decades.--Marilyn J. Harran, Chapman University

Roma felt strongly that she had to pass on her legacy, and I believe likewise that it is beshert (meant to be) before these memories fade completely from their consciousness.--Dr. Dina Ripsman Eylon, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Women in Judaism: A Multidisciplinary Journal

This is an essential primary source for scholars and graduate students.--Dr. Joanna B. Michlic, Bristol University

Essential reading for all those interested in the fate of Polish Jews in the twentieth century.--Prof. Antony Polonsky, Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw

This memoir, however, is unusual. It is not only the result of a conversation between mother and daughter; it is also constructed in two voices. We learn about the past and the present, or more technically, about intergenerational transmission.--Dr. Dennis Klein

A young Jewish woman who faced the terrible events that shaped 20th century Polish Jewish existence and alone survived to recount a full life.--Prof. Kenneth Waltzer, Michigan State University

Unforgettable and highly recommended.--Prof. Matthew Feldman, Teesside University

Reminds us of a truth the Holocaust sadly confirmed: traumatic total loss creates an absence that can only be retained as memory.--Prof. Al Filreis, University of Pennsylvania

For me personally, the memoir was particularly moving -- and relevant -- since Roma's story was so similar to my father's.--Prof. Arlene J. Stein, Rutgers University

A narrative from a generation that successfully escaped the Holocaust but endured its losses for the rest of their lives.--Prof. Dalia Ofer

Sweet memories as well as the haunting details of victimization and overcoming enormous obstacles for three generations of Jews in Europe and then the US.--Prof. Elaine Leeder, Sonoma State University

Reading a memoir like this tells the story of so many people so that reading it can help heal a lot generations who carry this unbelievable tragedy in their lives.--Prof. Shatit Shoshi, Bar Ilan University

A deeply, moving and historically rich account of a Holocaust story common to many survivors but still little known and documented.--Prof. Atina Grossmann, author of Jews, Germans, and Allies: Close Encounters in Occupied Germany

A vividly told story of Polish Jews who suffered the oppression of both Hitler and Stalin.--Prof. Myrna Goldenberg, Montgomery College

I congratulate Suzanna Eibuszyc for her work to inspire all the new generations to come.--Inge Auerbacher, Holocaust survivor, author, and inspirational speaker

This is a haunting and brave book, it will both move and educate readers.--Janice Eidus, author of The War of the Rosens and The Last Jewish

It highlights the notions of sacrifice, determination, loyalty and love in various forms. Reads like a Jewish version of Angela's Ashes, by Frank McCourt.--Aaron Elster, author of I Still See Her Haunting Eyes

A most compelling and illuminating memoir. In her straightforward style, the author encompasses life in its totality. It is highly recommended.--Judy Weissenberg Cohen, editor of Women and the Holocaust

It gives the impression of Roma being the sane center in the middle of millions of ants scurrying about trying to survive in the face of incredible odds.--Rudy Rosenberg, author of And Somehow We Survive

Will live in our hearts, reviving the spirit of those who suffered.--Rabbi Barbara Aiello

The memoir resonates deeply in everyone whose life has been touched by events beyond their control.--Rita B. Ross, author of Running from Home

It's one of the most moving pieces that I've had the honor of sharing on The Jewish Writing Project site.--Bruce Black, founder of The Jewish Writing Project

History is about what a child feels growing up in the poverty of Post-World War I Poland. It is about what it is like to feel fear the day the Germans invaded Poland in 1939.--Dr. John Z. Guzlowski, Eastern Illinois University
