Amidst Latvians During the Holocaust

ByEdward Anders

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"One of the best books of 2011"…A nerve-wracking saga in which life and death depend on a capricious fate…absorbing lucidity…vivid portraits…simple moral vision that resonates: "I became immunized against prejudice”. A testament of remarkable clarity and humanity, wrung from dark experience.— KIRKUS REVIEWS. ***Surviving the Holocaust by a hair, Anders became a brilliant scientist. Part I is a memoir of his youth, including the Soviet and German occupations of Latvia. Part II discusses, with objectivity and precision, Latvian conduct during WWII. —ANDREW EZERGAILIS, Professor of History, Ithaca, NY. ***Anders survived by an outright lie (invented by his father) that his mother was a German foundling raised by a Jewish couple. His father was soon executed, but Edward and his mother bluffed their way through the nightmarish years of the German occupation (1941-1945). —MORRIS HALLE, Institute Professor of Linguistics, MIT, Cambridge, MA.
