Item description for Daughters of Absence: Transforming a Legacy of Loss (Capital Discovery) by Mindy Weisel...

Now in paperback - the book that Susan Tumarkin Goodman of the Jewish Museum New York praised: "Mindy Weisel and the other daughters of Holocaust survivors have provided us with extraordinary insights. "The solemn beauty of their sagas and the triumph over the past is a gift to their parents, who survived and rebuilt their lives, and to those millions who did not." Peter Novick, author of The Holocaust in America, professor of history at The University of Chicago, described it as: "Each in her own genre, these 'daughters of absence' trace - with great skill, great courage, and great candor - their journey from a ghost-ridden past to a fulfilling present."

Reviews - What do customers think about Daughters of Absence: Transforming a Legacy of Loss (Capital Discovery)?

A powerful, life-affirming read  Sep 7, 2001
Aptly edited by Mindy Weisel, Daughters Of Absence: Transforming A Legacy Of Loss is an impressive and revealing collection of writings of the children of Holocaust survivors. It is also an homage to Holocaust survivors, intended as a gift from the children of those survivors to their parents, and as a tribute to the millions who died. With moving, uplifting prose that recounts how the daughters of survivors transforms a legacy of shadow into the artistic light of movies, art, photographs, poems, novels, and lives, Daughters Of Absence is a powerful, life-affirming read and a strongly recommended addition to Holocaust studies reading lists and reference collections.
A remarkable collection.  May 3, 2001
Mindy Weisel has beautifully compiled, and elegantly introduced, a remarkable collection of intimate pieces on the most difficult of topics.
Filling Absence with Joy  May 2, 2001
Twelve wonderful, talented women have taken the time to share their view of the world as it was shaped for them by their parent's Holocaust experience. Rather than turn embittered or defensive, these women turned that legacy of loss and pain into beauty, light, joy and love. We can all learn from these women - that we must honor our pasts, but live life each day, full of hope and happiness. That is the gift to us from the generation before - the ability to go on. Daughters of Absence is a lesson we all need to read, learn and live.

Thank you ladies, one and all, for sharing your stories. I am a better person for having read the book. You touched my heart.
