I am on the last few chapters of In My Father’s Court and as testament to its masterful writing I am sensing a tonal shift as the scenes moves away from the poor if idyllic daily life of the Warsaw ghetto pre-war to the reality (or unreality) of 1917 onwards. The book piqued my interest enough to look for photos of that era and I found Eilat Gordon Levitan’s site.
A memorial site for those who were displaced or perished during the Holocaust. This site will hopefully shine a light on the dangerous consequences of bigotry, racism, anti-semitism and xenophobia wherever it occurs. May the mantra – never again – apply to the oppression of all targeted groups around the world.
It’s the perfect match for In My Father’s Court. Touching, funny, heart-breaking. Oh the humanity!
