    1. Since this book was written by a second generation Holocaust survivor, I had assumed that she was telling her parents story sad to say that she was far too busy telling the reader in great detail all about her sex life instead.Highly disappointed as this was nothing like I thought it would be.

    3. I look forward to hearing your responses to a book that took many years to write and publish A Second Generation Holocaust survivor, a 2G, struggling with her legacy.
