Description


From fleeing the Warsaw Ghetto and living underground to fighting for social justice in 1960's Seattle to helping smash the communist system in 1980's Poland, this is a narrative that erupts into critical moments in Jewish, Polish, and American history. It is also a story of the hidden anguish that accompanies and courses through that history, of the living haunted by the dead. The story is told through a dialogue, often contentious, between Michael Steinlauf, historian of Polish-Jewish culture and child of Holocaust survivors, and the Polish anthropologist and artist Elżbieta Janicka. It is illustrated with scores of photographs and documents.
