Description

In a turn-of-the-century, once elegant building at 16 Ujazdowskie Avenue in the center of Warsaw, 10 Jewish families began reconstructing their lives after the Holocaust. While most surviving Polish Jews were making their homes in new countries, these families rebuilt on the rubble of the Polish capital and created new communities as they sought to distance themselves from the memory of a painful past. Based on interviews with family members, intensive research in archives, and the families' personal papers and correspondence, Karen Auerbach presents an engrossing story of loss and rebirth, political faith and disillusionment, and the persistence of Jewishness.show more

Review quote

"Filled with strongly drawn portraits of fascinating individuals... Auerbach's book is an immense work of retrieval. She expands the range of Polish history, of Jewish history, and of the borderlands between them." --Michael Steinlauf, author of Bondage to the Dead: Poland and the Memory of the Holocaust--Michael Steinlauf, author of Bondage to the Dead: Poland and the Memory of the Holocaustshow more
