Product Details


“Fascinating . . . A tragic saga, but at the same time it often reads like a thriller filled with acts of extraordinary courage, descriptions of dangerous journeys and a series of secret identities.”Chicago Tribune

oignant . . . affecting . . . part detective story, part literary memoir, part imagined past.”The New York Times Book Review

“Riveting . . . painfully authentic . . . a poignant memoir, a labor of love for the parents she never really knew.”The Boston Globe

“Mesmerizing . . . Fremont has accomplished something that seems close to impossible. She has made a fresh and worthy contribution to the vast literature of the Holocaust.”The Washington Post Book World

“A story of safe but costly passage from one identity to another that takes us from Europe to America via World War II . . . [Fremont] has the intelligence and imagination to question her own motives. This allows her to question the memoir form, even as she deploys it so beautifully.”The New York Times

“An extraordinary tale . . . eloquently written. . . . Its complex narrative weaves back and forth between past and present, the tale and its discovery.”The Philadelphia Inquirer
