The Seven, a Family Holocaust Story

The Seven, a Family Holocaust Story by Ellen G. Friedman
English | November 13th, 2017 | ISBN: 0814344143 | 258 Pages | EPUB | 4.79 MB

Most Polish Jews who survived the Second World War did not go to concentration camps, but were banished by Stalin to the remote prison settlements and Gulags of the Soviet Union. Less than ten percent of Polish Jews came out of the war alive—the largest population of Jews who endured—for whom Soviet exile was the main chance for survival. Ellen G. Friedman’s The Seven, A Family Holocaust Story is an account of this displacement.

The Tender Land: A Family Love Story

The Tender Land: A Family Love Story by Kathleen Finneran

A superb portrait of family life, THE TENDER LAND is a love story unlike any other. The Finnerans – parents and five children, Irish Catholics in St. Louis – are a seemingly unexceptional family. Theirs is a story seldom told, yet it makes manifest how rich and truly extraordinary the ordinary daily experience we take for granted is. In quietly luminous language, Kathleen Finneran renders the emotional, spiritual, and physical terrain of family life – its closeness and disconnection, its intimacy and estrangement–and pays tribute to the love between parents and children, brothers and sisters.
