    Helen Epstein has reconstructed the stories of the women in her family from her great grandmother to her mother I found the historical quotes about Jews from the period distracting to the story than enhancing of it The stories themselves are fascinating enough, and her ability to research her topics, starting with very little factual data, was amazing.

    One of the best books I ve read on the history of a family Extensive research leads to a well told story written like a novel, though it is all true, and heartbreakingl so as you watch the family caught up in the runup to the war Eptstein is the best historical writer of memoir I ve read.

    I just finished this book, in the wee hours of the morning when I couldn t sleep I found it very interesting, good info on Czech history, Jewish Czech life, searching for family history I like the way the personal stories were interwoven with history book info.

    Excellent and outstandingly well researched portrait of a family through four generations In addition to the family story, I also learned quite a bit about the history of Jews in Europe including the Holocaust and Czech history.

    The history is not just of her mother s family, but of the Czechs from 1900s to the 1950s She was arduous in her research and honest in her telling Highly readable and an excellent addition to history of the period.

    Interesting

    As a child of a Holocaust survivor from Eastern Germany I could somewhat relate to the culture that the book describes It is a very interesting book about the history of the Czech Jews.
