BLOG TOUR – Escaping the Whale by Ruth Rotkowitz

For those who grew up with parents and/or other family members who were Holocaust survivors, they have lived their entire lives accompanied by the Holocaust as if it were an additional living, breathing family member; a shadow cousin perhaps, always lurking in the background, ready to pounce at any given moment.

That is, until the dreams started… From the idyllic calm... Continue Reading →
