Books Info:

The Girl from Human Street free pdf In his intimate and profoundly moving Jewish family history a memoir of displacement, prejudice, hope, despair, and love award-winning New York Times columnist Roger Cohen turns a compassionate and discerning eye on the legacy of his own forebears. Beginning in the nineteenth century and continuing through to the present day, Cohen tracks his family s story of repeated upheaval, four generations of wandering from pre-Shoah Lithuania to apartheid-era South Africa, and then to England, the United States, and Israel. At the heart of Cohen s story is the powerful bond he had with his mother, the girl forced to travel far from home. Tormented by a deep depression yet stoic in her struggle, she embodied her son s complex inheritance. Graceful, honest, and sweeping, The Girl from Human Street is a remarkable chronicle of the quest for belonging across generations, a gripping saga, and a resonant portrait of identity and memory in the modern age."
