Product description

Review

"Rita Goldberg's mother was a Holocaust survivor whose epic escapes from the Nazis were worthy of a film script. But like many children of camp survivors, Rita has also been affected profoundly by her experience."
--"The Guardian"

"Ms. Goldberg's book is an exemplary attempt to confront the complex fate of these families cut brutally from their own history. "Motherland" is a double memoir that braids her parents' story with her own, and succeeds in articulating a difficult truth."
--"The Economist"


"A double memoir that braids her parents' story with her own, and succeeds in articulating a difficult truth."
--The Economist

"At the heart of this engrossing memoir is her mother...The extraordinary tale is heroic. It strikes the reader as thoroughly romantic, even cinematic."
--The New York Times

"Goldberg writes eloquently of the 'volcanic pressures' that shaped her family's story and continue to haunt her own."
--Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

Like Anne Frank, Hilde Jacobsthal was born in Germany and brought up in Amsterdam. Unlike Anne Frank, she survived the war and Otto Frank later became her godfather.
