In this unique follow-up memoir to the author’s first book, From Out of the Firestorm: A Memoir of the Holocaust, young Rachela copes with a new language and culture, raising a family, finding a profession, and always seeking the company of the remaining relatives and friends from her vanished world of Eastern Europe. Rachela shares her amazement at the America of the sanitized Fifties, the revolutionary Sixties, and materialistic Seventies, reliving for us the impact of the JFK assassination, the Six Day War, the moon walk and more, even as private and national events (like Vietnam) provoke flashbacks of ghettos, deportations, and mass murder. Both terrifying crises and small comedic ones are magnified in the survivor-narrator’s eyes.
