In this innovative memoir, Bernice Eisenstein combines her skills as a writer and illustrator to distill her memories of growing up in the 1950s in the shadow of the Holocaust. Drawing on the harrowing experiences of her parents-both of them Holocaust survivors-and the fragmented stories of other family members lost in the war, she explores the impact of their legacy on her own life. A groundbreaking exploration of personal history in the tradition of Art piegelman's Maus, I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors is a searingly honest and deeply moving work that speaks to the universality of memory and loss.
