My Parents [Hebrew]

By Aharon Applefeld

It took some time for me to get used to the writing in this book, but all-in-all it's a pretty interesting look at a small family on their vacation among others in a 1930s style resort for jews. On one hand they are all trying to distance themselves from their ancestors' traditions, but on the other hand they cannot forget they're jews (if only because non-jews in that day's Ukraine constantly remind them of that fact). The story is told from the point of view of a 10-year old (and 7 months). [269 pp.]
