Read full description of the books:
Memory is Our Home is a powerful biographical memoir based on the diaries of Roma Talasiewicz-Eibuszyc, who was born in Warsaw before the end of World War I, grew up during the interwar period and who, after escaping the atrocities of World War II, was able to survive in the vast territories of Soviet Russia and Uzbekistan.
Translated by her own daughter, interweaving her own recollections as her family made a new life in the shadows of the Holocaust in Communist Poland after the war and into the late 1960s, this book is a rich, living document, a riveting account of a vibrant young woman's courage and endurance.
A forty-year recollection of love and loss, of hopes and dreams for a better world, it provides richly-textured accounts of the physical and emotional lives of Jews in Warsaw and of survival during World War II throughout Russia. This book, narrated in a compelling, unique voice through two generations, is the proverbial candle needed to keep memory alive.

Read information about the authorBorn in communist Poland after the war, where we lived until the late 1960s. Attended a Jewish High School, Szalom Alejchem in Wroclaw before leaving for America. Graduated from CCNY with a BA. At the department of Jewish studies is where I first met Professor Elie Wiesel. I received MA from UCLA, and was awarded a grant which allowed me to travel to Poland and Israel. Meeting professor and writer Elie Wiesel made me realize the importance of Holocaust survivors' stories. I insisted my mother write down her incredible accounts she shared with me throughout my life. Ultimately I addressed the trauma of growing up in the shadows of Holocaust aftermath and how this trauma is transferred between generations. For me, the 2G, I had no way of knowing but the seed for writing "Memory is Our Home" was planted in my childhood. Looking back in time, I know now that my entire life was a preparation, to be "a memorial candle". I assumed the burden of my parents' emotional world and I became the link between the past and the future. This history is imbedded deep in my memory, my soul, it is part of my DNA.
