The Woman in the Photograph By Mani Fineger

photo  kindle free ebooks

What if a secret photograph and a property stolen by the Nazis unlocked the door to your mother’s buried past and to a family history you knew nothing about?

“A riveting, beautifully written memoir.” – Naomi Lucks

“The story has a heartbeat.” – Sue Bender

“An eloquent account of a daughter’s transformative journey into the heart of her mother’s hidden life.” – Elizabeth Rosner

Mani Feniger steered a deliberate course away from her mother’s German-Jewish roots. But with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, she found herself swept up in a flood of startling revelations from her mother’s earlier life. As she pored through old photographs and documents, she began to ask questions about secrets and omissions. The answers she found both shocked and inspired her, and would irrevocably transform her view of her mother, herself, and the meaning of family legacy.

From Berkeley, California to New York City, to Leipzig, Germany, this compelling memoir takes you across continents and lifetimes.

“The Woman in the Photograph” will make you wonder about the men and women in your own photographs and how your life has been shaped by events you know little about.
