Abstract:

The Watchmaker's Daughter tells the story of a child of two refugees: a watchmaker who saved lives within Dachau prison, and his wife, a gifted concert pianist about to make her debut when the Nazis seized power. In this memoir, Sonia Taitz is born into a world in which the Holocaust is discussed constantly by her insular concentration camp-surviving parents. This legacy, combined with Sonia's passion and intelligence, leads the author to forge an adventurous life in which she seeks to heal both her parents and herself through travel, achievement, and a daring love affair. Ironically, it is her marriage to a non-Jew that brings her parents the peace and fulfillment they would never have imagined possible. Sonia manages to combine her own independence with a tender dutifulness, honoring her parents' legacy while forging a new family of her own.

Poignant Memoir

von GraceCS (Veröffentlicht von WorldCat-Nutzern/innen 2013-02-17) Ausgezeichnet Permalink

This book is a very powerful remembrance of things that should never have been experienced. The author gives many details of her life, yet these add to the beauty of the story. It is a wonderful book about life, forgiveness, love, and hope.
