In the crook of the rock - Jewish refuge in a world gone mad : the Chaya Leah Walkin story / Vera Schwarcz

Publication | Library Call Number: DS135.C5 S39 2018
Book cover

"Focusing upon the life of Chaya Walkin--one little girl from a distinguished Torah lineage in Poland-- this book illustrates the inner resources of the refugee community that made possible survival with dignity. Based on a wide variety of sources and languages, this book is crafted around the voice of a child who was five years old when she was forced to flee her home in Poland and start the terrifying journey to Vilna, Kobe and Shanghai. The Song of Songs is used to provide an unexpected and poetic angle of vision upon strategies for creating meaning in times of historical trauma"-- Provided by publisher.
