June Hersh offers us a rare gift in this cookbook. It is a testament to the Jewish human
condition and its ability to transcend the past and move forward without forgetting. The
survivors’ stories of deep love and great loss moved me. The understanding that for
many, these recipes are all that remains of large, close, precious families takes my breath
away. The juxtaposition of their brave stories with recipes only makes what they endured
even more unimaginable. May the food of their memories nourish our spirits.
—Suzie Fishbein, author of the Kosher by Design series of cookbooks
