Lost Roots: Family, Identity, and Abandoned Ancestry (Paperback)
The saga of one generation's experience in a century of violence, displacement, and repression. How eugenics and tribalism shaped immigration and citizenship laws in the U.S. and Germany, and how one family was affected by the unchecked ethnic nationalism of the time.
"Well written, exhaustively researched, and a beautiful compilation of a family's lost collective history." - Readers' Favorite
"A well-researched and sentimental memoir that] details the way oppressive structures have altered the identity of millions of families. Lost Roots has equal parts nostalgic storytelling and detailed research, providing beguiling context for what's happening in Poland, Germany, and America. I was completely enthralled until the very last word."
