About this title


Blima Weisstuch is an ordinary woman who works in a bakery in a small town in Poland. But when the worst happens and she is suddenly torn from her family and everything she knows, Blima is swept up in the horrors which we have come to know as the Holocaust, and the impact of this heartbreaking and catastrophic event not only transforms her life, but generations to come. My Mother’s Shoes is a moving memoir which spans over fifty years, depicting the unbreakable bonds between a mother and daughter living in Brooklyn after the mother flees from the ashes of the Holocaust. The novel expands upon the successful The Story of Blima—A Holocaust Survivor, and answers the question of what happens to Blima when she forges a new life. This riveting, beautifully written memoir alternates the voices of Blima, her American alter-ego, Betty, and her daughter, Shirley. Ultimately, My Mother’s Shoes conveys the resilience of the human spirit and is a testimony to the power of family.
