1 Review
The first of its kind, this anthology showcases women's writing previously available only in Yiddish. A book of voices from an almost forgotten female heritage, it features eighteen writers who speak powerfully of the events that shaped their lives; the daily fabric of life in Europe, the struggle from which new lives in North America, Palestine and then Israel were forged, the terror and challenge of survival during the Holocaust and its aftermath.

User Review  - Socket Klatzker - Goodreads

So glad this book exists. The marriage focus and melodramatic tone of the authors really gave me an idea of what life was like for the way ass brave writers of the few stories I read. Read full review
