This is a fascinating page turner- a unique perspective of an escape from a horrendous event based on a trove of compelling letters and interviews.
It illuminates the suffering, the will to survive and go on when so many didn't or couldn't.
The horror of fleeing your country-friends, family, jobs and relocating in places such as Ecuador, China, the United States and never knowing whether you'd ever go back is just one of the appalling tragedies witnessed. The random post exit communications amongst family and friends, the basis of the book, illuminate the dread, dismay that the survivors went through and provide the persistent tension of the book
The fact that the author's parents eventually adjust and prosper in the United States is a wonderful example of survival. However, the sadness of losing so much in a myriad of ways again illuminates the horrors that befell the world and specifically, the Jews of Prague, Czechoslovakia.
