5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, October 23, 2012
This review is from: Into No Man's Land: A Historical Memoir (Paperback)
"Into No Man's Land: a Historical Memoir" brings out the images, sounds, smells - and even tastes - of a world most of us do not know. What was it like to be a Jewish child in a sophisticated home in Warsaw, Poland in the late 30's, and then part of a family trying to escape the worst of WW II only to find themselves in a Siberian labor camp and in an impoverished village in Uzbekistan in the 40's? How does a child living eight years in orphanages develop her creativity, spontaneity and joy of living? How does a writer remember and capture some of the details of those experiences as a child, and then as a teenager that has lived in postwar Eastern Europe, Israel and finally in the United States? Irene Miller is able to describe her exuberance, curiosity and creativity in the midst of struggles and constraints in a way that will engage readers and expand their thinking, knowledge and appreciation of their own lives today. This is a story of courage, perseverance, determination, and the power of the human spirit to flourish in difficulty. It is a story of growth and change, told honestly and lyrically. It is a good read!"
