After Long Silence: A Woman's Search for Her Family's Secret Identity
Fremont, Helen
ISBN: 0749919787
Piatkus Books, 1999  1999 
  8vo hardcover 322pp. very good / very good d/w. Review: In her mid-thirties, Helen Fremont discovered that, although she had been raised in the Midwest of the US as a Catholic, she was in fact the daughter of Polish Jews whose families had been exterminated in the Holocaust. Fremont's tender but unsparing memoir chronicles the voyage of discovery she took with her older sister, ferreting out information from Jewish organisations and individuals, worrying about its impact on their angry, overpowering father and reticent, nightmare-plagued mother. nnFremont has the courage to paint a nearly unsympathetic portrait of her parents' secretiveness and initial reluctance to have their children dredge up the past; as the narrative unfolds, readers comprehend the tormented roots of their behaviour, without forgetting the psychological problems it created for their daughters. Fremont's recreation of her parents' ghastly ordeals--her mother narrowly escaping the murder of nearly every Jew in her hometown; her father surviving six years in the Soviet gulag--is a triumph of dogged research and sympathetic imagination. Her book tells a deeply American story of identity lost and reclaimed, complete with Fremont coming out to her parents as a lesbian, yet it also achieves understanding of the dark European past and its icy grip on her family. --Wendy Smith nnSynopsisnHelen Fremont was raised as a Roman Catholic in America, only to discover in adulthood that her parents were Jews who survived the Holocaust. Delving into the secrets that held her family together in a bond of silence for more than forty years, she recounts a remarkable tale of survival.

Major Farran's Hat: Murder, Scandal and Britain's War Against Jewish Terrorism 1945-1948
Cesarani, David
Vintage Books April 5, 2010  2010 
  8vo softcover 304pp near fine. The gripping true story of the murder, in Palestine in 1947, of a Jewish activist by a British counter-terrorist officer, and the subsequent cover-up. In May 1947, a Jewish teenager, active in a Zionist underground group fighting British rule in Palestine, was abducted. He was never seen again. Witnesses said he was seized by British policeman. A hat found at the scene was traced to Major Roy Farran, an ex-SAS officer leading a covert counter-terrorist squad. A sensational court martial followed, but Farran was acquitted, and the Zionist underground swore vengeance. Drawing on recently declassified files of the security services, the book exploresnthe reasons why Britain lost Palestine and reveals the full extent and ambition of Jewish terrorist attacks on Britain in the late 1940s. Part Boys' Own adventure, part narrative history, Major Farran's Hat solves a murder mystery and exposes a shady episode in the final years of the British empire, and throws light on Britain's legacy in the Middle East.

Testimony : Contemporary Writers Make the Holocaust Personal
Rosenberg, David
ISBN: 0812918177
Random House (Times) 1989  1989 
  8vo hardcover 511pp. very good / very good d/w. From Publisher's Weekly - Publishers WeeklynIn this sequel to Congregation: Contemporary Writers Read the Jewish Bible , Rosenberg asks 26 notables when they first learned of the Holocaust, how it shaped their careers and other questions. In a keen essay, Phillip Lopate censures what he sees as the Jewish preoccupation with the Holocaust to the exclusion of other human and even other Jewish disasters. Lore Segal fled Austria and lived with five different English families in eight years; the Holocaust drew black American Julius Lester and German Susanne Schlotelburg to Judaism. Unfortunately, many pieces are labored, fragmented and self-indulgent, banal or romanticized trivializations, with the nadir being Gordon Lish: ``Yes, I am being paid for this. Yes, I am glad I am being paid for this. No, I did not say that I did not want to be paid for this. No, I did not say go give instead what you are paying to me to somebody who really paid with his bones for this.'' First serial to Esquire, Tikkun and Partisan Review; Jewish Book Club selection. (Dec.)nnFrom Library JournalnRosenberg, who edited the recent Congregation: Contemporary Writers Read the Jewish Bible ( LJ 11/15/87), has now edited a new collection of essays by 27 contemporary Jewish writers on how the Holocaust affected their lives--emotionally and intellectually--and how they came to terms with it. Contributors include Herbert Gold, Alfred Kazin, Anne Roiphe, Julius Lester, and Marge Piercy. The writing is consistently of a high level. This unusual anthology will be of value to anyone interested in Holocaust studies and Jewish literary life in America. For most collections.-- Robert A. Silver, Shaker Heights P.L., OhionnFrom Edith Milton - The New York Times Book Reviewn{This is} an artful patchwork of contrasting opinions and personalities.We may be invited to a few too many, and too banal, Pilgrims' Progresses to Jewish identity, but in the aggregate these essays transcend the obvious paradox at the heart of any anthology that offers to recollect genocide in tranquillity. One is given a small course in primary sources--Primo Levi, Paul Celan, Tadeusz Borowski--by some good and very varied instructors. And whatever shortcomings some of these essays display individually, they add up, finally, to auseful compendium of the difficult disagreements in contemporary Jewish thought. I should add, too, that several of these essays, in and of themselves, are very good indeed, a handful brilliant; and that even the worst take pains toavoid the conventional and the academic.
