The harrowing true story of a young boy exiled in World War II Poland, this memoir of survival has been hailed as a quintessential classic, as powerful as Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl , and celebrated for its rare beauty.

Now alone in the world, he has to change his name, forget his language, and abandon his religion in order to survive. Jack wanders through Nazi occupied Poland for four years, with no place to hide and no one to trust.

Gail L: 5. WWII era up to the near present. I'd like to read more novels by Deby Eisenberg. By Supersecdd: This is a touching intergenerational love story set amid the Holocaust. I could not wait to find out what happened to all the characters. I would have enjoyed a longer story. By Calireader: 5. I loved this book, it was poetic, descriptive, sad, and at the same time heartwarming.
The characters and their stories are beautifully written and I was saddened when it came to an end. Looking forward to reading more books by this author, hopefully soon. What a fabulous first book. She is a terrific new historical fiction author who does a good job of character building.
By kasnyp: 5. I would highly recommend it especially for those who do not like books with vile language and vivid sexual descriptions. You won't find that in this well written novel. The weaving together of these characters with the time of pre-WW2 with the present was very interesting and was hard to put down. Good and memorable read. By cishore: 5.

This book was amazing. Everything I hope for in a novel So very touching and surely a book I will treasure. By syril: 5. I am a retired school teacher and my hobby is reading new authors' books. The author is insightful and interesting.
I've read an assortment of books covering the holocaust over the last 40 some years, and felt I may have met my capacity with them. The stories often left me with a heaviness of heart. I'd lived most of my growing up years in Germany, even went to college in Munich, Germany, at the University of Maryland's extension campus, so it's a country that's very dear to my heart, and a people I'd come to love, as well. It has been difficult to separate the Nazi's from the kind people of Germany I'd come to know.
I'm glad I did take a chance on this particular book, however, because it beautifully balances the good and the ugly. It tells a story that gives the safe and lovely side of a life in Berlin, and then the rising of an extremist group that overtakes the country like locust.
I loved this book. From the earliest words, Deby Eisenberg captured my heart. I could hear the inflection of the grandmother's voice.
I could feel her indignation and her ire rising, and I could nearly sense the touches of her grand and great grandchildren as they gathered around to comfort her. Eisenberg is a masterful writer. She makes her story not only ring with truth, but resound with the vision of a cast of characters that you can well image actually existed. The love story interwoven within the historical mysteries of the book are engrossing.
I was so happy to read the details of transatlantic voyages, the beautiful cities both European and American of the pre-WW!! The mystery that's presented of old lovers, the painting's travels, and a family whose lives were changed by the Nazi terror is mesmerizing. It goes without saying that I highly recommend "Pictures of the Past" to everyone. It's a great book on this era from several perspectives. Beautifully written, it's a timeless love story that's anchored by a painting that's etched in the minds of the lovers.
It very expertly wove together the stories of parents and children tied together by WWII and an Impressionist painting that may or may not be stolen. The story begins with an investigation into a painting seen at the Chicago Institute of Art by a survivor of the Holocaust who insists that it could not belong to the family that donated it - she had seen it hanging in the home of Jewish friends in Berlin before Hitler did his worst.
From that point on the story weaves back and forth between three periods in time and various members of the two families explaining their pasts and their present. At no time does the moving around in time get confusing - it is done so seamlessly. Nor do you lose track of any of the myriad of characters; they all have such a powerful presence it's hard to forget them from chapter to chapter. I was truly enthralled with the characters and with this story.prodburgdavaschildlu.tk
My Mother's Ring
It's really more of a love story, not a war story and it is the different tales of love and sacrifice that drive the novel forward. Once I started reading I had a very hard time putting it down. It's a book that deserves a second reading. By Kathleen K. I admire an author that can take the idea and run with it.

That to me is what Pictures of the Past is, a very well researched story that may be fiction but certainly could have been very real. A story told in different times, before and during WWII, in the 70's, 80's and then in the 's.
With the different time frames and characters you would think the story would be confusing throughout but that is not the case. The story comes together seamlessly by the ending. To me that is the mark of a great author, to be able to keep the reader interested to the final page. Pictures of the Past tells the story of how war affects all those involved.
