Found Treasures by Fred Forman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first of its kind, this anthology showcases women's writing previously available only in Yiddish. A book of voices from an almost forgotten female heritage, it features eighteen writers who speak powerfully of the events that shaped their lives; the daily fabric of life in Europe, the struggle from which new lives in North America, Palestine and then Israel were forged, the terror and challenge of survival during the Holocaust and its aftermath.

Sarah Swartz was editor-in-chief of Jewish Women in America: An Historic Encyclopedia. Her other books include Found Treasures and Bar Mitzvah.
