A young Jewish woman’s epic struggle to survive the 20th century's most pitiless decades, takes her and her children from romance-drenched Odessa to the Soviet Far East, and the bleakness of Jewish settlement life in Birobidzhan. At the heart of LAMENT stretch three years of war-time captivity, forced labor, and miraculous survival in the death trap that was Transnistria, Romanian-occupied Ukraine.
Richly detailed, deeply researched, and full of humor, Nostalgistudio’s inaugural title is a timely novel about women and family, exile, war, prejudice, and the testing of humanity’s spirit by the ultimate challenges.
