Susan’s mother, Lucy Fowler née Smetana, was a Viennese Jew who fled to Nottingham, England, in 1938 to flee Nazi persecution. She lost most of her immediate family, but spoke little of her experiences for decades. In 1995, Susan learned for the first time of other members of the extended family who had survived and were now scattered around the world. Thus began an 18-year search for her mother’s family, and for the story of what had happened to them during that dreadful era. She also travelled back two hundred years into her family’s past, uncovering in the process an oral family history claiming descent from the Czech composer, Bedrich Smetana. Just as she was completing her research, she was the astonished recipient of some 3,000 pages of Nazi documents sent by the Austrian State Archives, fromwhich she learnt the fate of several family members. She also learnt the details of the arrest of her grandmother and aunt in France, and their deportation to Auschwitz. Richly illustrated with archive photographs and rare historical documents, this biography and family history spanning eight generations is an extraordinary story of one family’s struggle to deal with the impact and the legacy of the Holocaust. It is also a Holocaust memoir which offers a unique insight into the inner workings of the Nazi regime in Austria. Stephen Smith, Executive Director of the Shoah Foundation Institute, writes in his Foreword: “In this remarkable book, Susan… was able to give names to the nameless, faces to the faceless – and restore the wholeness of a family the Nazis had intended to destroy…. It restores life where there was death, presence where there was absence, roots where identity was lost, hope where there was despair.”

Ytli
This book is a beautifully written account of the author's search for her family history.... written by a descendant of a Jewish family, which had been separated to the corners of the globe and was haunted by their experiences in World War II. She explores the stories of her family, and then delves back into the records The book would appeal to those interested in Genealogy research, Jewish history, or history of the World War II era. Well documented and researched, it reads like a compelling story, full of tension, drama, and even mystery. The author is a Psychologist, and she is able to put into context some of the effects of trauma not only on those who directly experience it, but also on their descendants.
X-MEN
Susan Soyinka’s mother fled to England, leaving most of her family back in Austria to fall victim to the Nazis, and barely spoke of her past. Susan grew up with no knowledge of her Jewish roots, nor of her mother’s past, or of a web of relatives still living around the globe. This book recounts her journey of discovery and is a remarkable memorial to her mother and to the rest of the family, silenced by the Holocaust. Documented through painstaking research, it will be of great interest to anyone trying to trace their family history, particularly those with a Jewish background.

Fantastic story and everyone should read what Hitlet did to people
