Item description for Arriving Where We Started by Barbara Probst Solomon...

Arriving Where We Started is a memoir about an American girl's personal odyssey in post-World War II Europe. While the war against Hitler raged on in Europe, most young American girls were contemplating college. But as Hitler was rounding up Jews to send them to the gas chambers, and Franco was cracking down on student underground resistance in Spain, Barbara Probst Solomon was persuading her parents to approve her passpost application for a trip she felt impelled to make to Europe when the war was over. In high school she noted to herself: "Make sure you get to Moscow--danger is in not arriving." Mer "Moscow" was post-war Europe: France, Germany and Spain. Her urgent need as an American Jewish girl was to understand the Holocaust. Shocked at Europe's indifference to the genocide of the Jews, she involved herself in the Spainish anti-communist left, and in the rescue of intellectual dissidents from Franco's prisons. She took with her to Europe a sixteen millimeter movie camera, and Arriving Where We Started is the basis for her recently internationally released documentary made from those carefully preserved films, When the War Was Over.

Reviews - What do customers think about Arriving Where We Started?

Jewish woman comes to age among exiles from Franco�s Spain.  Oct 10, 2001
A fascinating autobiography of an American Jewish woman coming to age in post-WWII New York and Europe, this book has much in common with a female novel of development. Probst Solomon portrays with striking honesty and intimacy the personal twists and turns that bring her from the "linguistic bouillabaise"of her educated New York home with its German nanny, through the perils of adolescent loves, to her political adventures in post-war Europe and the sudden deaths of her husband and Spanish lover. An American journalist, who wrote in Spanish for "Península" magazine, which was to provide the intellectual base for Spanish exiles of the Franco regime, Probst Solomon�s work is infused with erudition, "intelligent rebellion" and idealism. With the help of Norman Mailer�s sister, the young Probst Solomon helps spring dissidents from Spanish jails. From her home among the exiles in Paris, she travels to Munich and Dachau at the end of 1948, where she has unsettling encounters with a Jewish survivor in the black market and with occupying American troops. She returns to New York, politically mature beyond her years, at the age of 21.
