Described as a "script for a movie", Passport to Life: Autobiographical Reflections on the Holocaust, is a novel-like tale of adventure woven with a meditative element; making our protagonist part Indiana Jones, part Sigmund Freud. As a Jewish boy in Poland and Hungary during World War II, Emanuel Tanay struggled daily to stay alive and against all odds, succeeded. Sixty years later, Tanay looks back on a wonderful life in America, as an internationally known forensic psychiatrist and expert on homicide. Passport to Life is the written documentation of this journey. Part memoir, part history, and part social commentary, it is a successful hybrid, much like Tanay's life. Passport to Life is far, far more than an autobiographical memoir. It is more than a record of Holocaust atrocities. It is quite literally the embodiment of its title, an indispensable contribution to Holocaust literature shelves and psychology shelves, and bears the absolute highest recommendation to school libraries, public libraries, Holocaust literature collections, scholars and lay readers alike. Do not pass up this book. The Midwest Book Review
