Sample Book Insights:
#1 My childhood was wonderful. I had a father who was a bookseller and a mother who was a librarian. I had a large library of Jewish books, and I thought I was the luckiest girl alive because I was given samples of the beautiful dolls my father was selling.
#2 My father was a successful businessman, and because of this, my family was able to live a comfortable life. I enjoyed helping him deliver orders to customers, and I was extremely self-confident because of this.
#3 I had a friend who lived across from my aunt and uncle, and when I would visit, my father would warn me against visiting them because the communists would put me in jail. I used to love visiting them, because they were fascinating communists.
#4 My mother’s family were all tall, blond, and good looking. One of her uncles, Rachmeal, lived in Kibart, a small town on the Lithuanian-German border. He was married to Rosa, who came from a wealthy family in Libau, Latvia. They had a large apartment in an affluent part of Kibart.
