Beanie

The second exodus from Egypt

by Beanie on May 8, 2010

An uneven memoir about a child's recollection's of a priviledged life in Egypt before expulsion as Jews, and struggles after arriving in the USA to survive. Her early memories almost seem too complete for a child of six.

Great read

by jrsw on Sep 25, 2008

Loved reading all about Cairo and the Jewish life there before the jews were persecuted. It was interesting to follow this family to the US. Their transition was extremely well written with vivid details.
