PLUS A FIVE-STAR REVIEW
From Silt and Ashes 5.0 out of 5 stars
August 27, 2019
A pogrom against the Jews in the (then) Russian cities of Kishinev and Odessa more than a century ago unleashed by astonishing hatred and bigotry killed families and scarred many lives. In the sequel to Please Say Kaddish for Me, the protagonist, Hava Gitterman, though badly wounded, survives and comes to America. Her wounds-physical and emotional-will torture her body and soul forever. Yet, she suffers with silent dignity and remains compassionate to others. Her story captures a tragic part of the Jewish experience, and the best characteristics of a people suffering persistent bias. It is a story of human strength and the promise of America.
