"Honest and brave. A monument to the dead of Transnistria, to a black mark in history and to an enduring spirit."--Miami Herald
"Gripping, deeply involved reading. . . . [Throws] light on the much-neglected area of Transnistrian Jewry before and during the war."-- Jerusalem Post
"An impressive document of human resilience, a luminous portrait of a never-embittered survivor, gifted with an exacting love for life and people."--Norman Manea, author of The Black Envelope
"Ruth Gold proves that the heart broken into a thousand pieces can be broken yet more. . . . Read this book: it is filled with the stubborn light of the (barely describable) truth."--Andrei Codrescu, author of The Blood Countess
"[Ruth Gold’s] loyalty to her origins and her desire to recount what it meant to survive those who sought to destroy them are the essence of her memoir."--Aharon Appelfeld, author of On to the Soul
"On March 6, 1944, about two thousand orphans were rescued from Romanian concentration camps in Transnistria-Ukraine. I was one of them." So begins Ruth Gold’s memoir, a story that illuminates and transcends survival.
Ruth Glasberg Gold, who was born in the province of Bukovina, Romania (now Ukraine), lives in Miami, Florida. She cofounded the American Branch of the Women's International Zionist Organization (WIZO) in 1982 and in 1990 founded in Florida the first Child Survivors of the Holocaust support group. Retired from her long career as a registered nurse, she speaks frequently on the Holocaust and is a freelance interpreter in seven languages.
