In this powerful memoir, Helen Fremont delves into the secrets that held her family in a bond of silence for more than four decades, recounting with heartbreaking clarity a remarkable tale of survival, as vivid as fiction but with ...

Heartbreaking Memoir

by sd6161 on Feb 15, 2008

Helen Freemont's memoir, After Long Silence, speaks far beyond the words on each page as she tells her story of learning that her parents were Jewish Holocaust survivors. Freemont recounts her story of discovering this truth when she was a young adult, having lived her entire childhood brought up as Catholic with no knowledge of her Jewish decent and extended family. Her story is a powerful lesson about the ways in which fear and shame can damage an individual and entire family. It also sheds light on the power of love and the effort people will make to protect those they love.
