- Glenn C. Altschuler, The Jerusalem Post
"I find the act of reentering one's fraught family history with the commitment and honesty that [...] Rosen display[s] to be an extraordinary feat."
- Howard Freedman, J. Weekly
"Unsentimental and wise, with a keen eye, [Rosen] tells of the fates of emigrants, of homeland and identity, and of the strength of the women who survived, his mother and grandmother."
- Simon Benne, Hannoversche Allgemeine
"... a moving Book. It's the story of one man who lost his homeland twice."
- Jörn Funke, Westfälische Anzeiger
"This is a gripping and engaging exploration of a family whose lives were indelibly changed by Nazi restrictions, by immigrant life in Israel, and by a grandson's search for missing parts of the stories."
- Martha Minow: Harvard Law School
"With sensitivity, love, and humor, Emanuel Rosen tells the story of his Yekke grandparents, their immigration and difficulties in the homeland of the Jewish people, and their journey in search of their roots and identity in Germany. An important and fascinating book that awakened in me deep feelings and a longing for a generation that is no more."
- Gabriela Shalev, former Israel's Ambassador to the U.N.; Professor (Emeritus) the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
"I thought I'd take a quick look at this book, but then I kept reading all of it in a day and a half."
- W. Michael Blumenthal: Former Secretary of the Treasury and director of the Jewish Museum Berlin (1997-2014)
"From generation to generation, it becomes more difficult to write about the persecution of Jews before and during WWII as one's personal past. Too much has been lost, and precisely because of that one wants to write about what can still be found. I respect what Emanuel Rosen did in this book, patiently and carefully exploring the past and guiding us through his findings about the story of his family."
- Bernhard Schlink: Author of "The Reader"
"The mystery of why Emanuel Rosen's grandfather killed himself haunts this book and keeps the reader gripped until the secrets of the past are ultimately uncovered and revealed. Suicide leaves a legacy of silence for those of us who are left behind and works such as this allows us to begin to understand how we are affected and start to heal. This book will greatly help survivors of suicide loss on their own personal journeys of discovery and hope."
- Carla Fine, Author of "No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One"

This memoir gave rise to many emotions as I read. It was honest, sad, heartwarming, tragic, and uplifting. I've heard it said that so long as their stories are told, a person will live on - this author has done his family proud.
THE GRNDFATHER, THE GRANDMOTHER AND THE MOTHER WERE CRUELLY UPROOTED FROM THEIR GERMAN "CERTAIN" FUTURE , AND EACH ONE OF THEM HAD HIS/HER WAY OF DEALING WITH THE POST TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE .
EMANUEL, IN A LOVING AND OPTIMISTIC LANGUAGE GIVES ALL OF THEM A PLACE IN OUR HEART .
THANK YOU EMANUEL.
