Author Naomi Litvin recreates her parents' incredible love story in the powerful memoir, We Never Lost Hope: A Holocaust Memoir and love Story.
Litvin, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor and an American Jewish GI who landed at Normandy, lets her family members reveal the stories of their lives before, during, and after the Holocaust. Told in five indelible voices, the book gives a you-are-there punch and a moving immediacy. Lovely and haunting, We Never Lost Hope is a reminder that genocide can happen anywhere, and that we all must be vigilant against the forces of hatred.
"It calls out to be read." Sir Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill and author of 88 books, wrote the foreword and contributed maps for We never Lost Hope.
Kirkus Discovery Review
In Beneath A Stormy Cloud: Moving On Without Her the stinging reality of the effects of the Holocaust on the second generation is illustrated as Naomi Litvin attempts reorientation to the world at large after losing her mother, a Romanian Holocaust survivor. In her second book, Beneath A Stormy Cloud: Moving On Without Her, Naomi Litvin knits a jigsaw puzzle-like anthology of her mother’s poetry with her own juxtaposing responses. Within these pages Naomi’s thought provoking commentary is a deeply personal struggle with her grief. Edith was her mentor, heroine, and best friend. Mother and daughter share the stage in this creative, special slice of history.
