From the Inside Flap:

?This volume of oral history by Samuel Iwry, Hebrew scholar and Zionist activist, is not only an autobiography but also a superb commentary on a turbulent century?s threats and victories.?--Elie Wiesel

?A remarkable odyssey took Samuel Iwry from Bialystok to Shanghai, Baltimore, and Jerusalem. His unflinching narration of his tumultuous life allows us to view the historical tides of the Second World War and its aftermath through a refugee?s eyes. He reminds us again that in order to learn from history we must be willing to listen to it.?--Donald A. Ritchie, author of Doing Oral History
