A film, a memoir, a novel ... Richly enhanced with letters, photographs and footage taken by her father, Su Goldfish’s moving documentary retraces her family’s steps and helps lay some ghosts to rest. Henry Rosenbloom tenderly brings his parents’ 1994 Holocaust memoirs back to life. Initially written for family, this story of teenage sweethearts, separated for six years by catastrophe, finally gets the wider audience it deserves. And in an extraordinary first novel, Bram Presser, with masterful inventiveness and brilliant prose, imagines the survival of his grandparents, using family myths, photographs, documents and Jewish folklore.
