From the Inside Flap
"I find "Surviving Freedom "a unique exploration of the identity that comes only after great suffering. Survivors of atrocities are confronted with the task of reconciling their past in order to build a new future. Bardach is one of the few to have written so eloquently about this transition."Simon Wiesenthal
"Bardach's account of his life in Stalin's postwar Moscow proves that trauma does not need to leave one bitter or broken. This memoir is an inspiration to anyone who has suffered and struggled to rebuild a life."Adam Hochschild, author of "King Leopold's Ghost "
"In this haunting book Bardach achieves his rightful place shoulder to shoulder with Primo Levi, Anne Frank, Elie Wiesel, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and other literary witnesses of the holocaust of the twentieth century."Paul Goldberg, author of "The Thaw Generation ""
