Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title of this book is "A Memoir of a Jewish Family During the Holocaust." It rarely touches on this and the main thrust of the book revolves around this family picture on the cover of the book where she describes, as she perceives, each member as she thinks they would have been just and how she would have liked them to have been by looking at their blurred faces. It flows with flowery prose not going into a single detail of the Holocaust and only briefly touches on how it affected the family. She had a tape given to her by her aunt having been recorded by her late uncle describing his experiences but she does not expand on any of this and I kept waiting for more. The writing was exceptionally poor and did not flow. I regretted buying it. There are so many many other memoirs out there with substance, better writing etc that this should be the last to be purchased. I cannot recommend it at all.
