When I took off the lid, photographs spilled out. There were hundreds of them. A foot emerged from the chaos, a leg. Many legs. Grotesquely frozen faces. My fingers turned the photo over: "Nordhausen, Germany, April 1945." After the death of her father, a WWII U.S. Army doctor, Leila Levinson discovers a concealed box of shocking photographs he had taken of a Nazi slave labor camp. She learns that he suffered a breakdown after treating the camp's survivors and is compelled to seek out and interview dozens of WWII veterans who also liberated Nazi concentration camps. Still traumatized by the unimaginable horrors they found, many of them revealed for the first time their painful experiences. In this groundbreaking portrait of trauma's legacy, Gated Grief reveals that unspoken memories continue to imprison and haunt WWII veterans and how the emotional scars affected their loved ones as well--including the author and her family.About the Author:
