Summary "For Nancy Kohner, history was a daily voyage of personal discovery. She spent years piecing together her Jewish family's heritage from the thousands of letters and photos they brought with them as they ran from Hitler's armies. This memoir is about the bonds that span generations and survive even the most brutal separation of all, and a celebration of the Kohners' love and courage."--BOOK JACKET.
