A BORDER TOWN IN POLAND -- BOOK REVIEWS



"A memorable memoir -- a fabulous book -- a major work of love and devotion.  Revolutions in Poland, Russia and Germany are described vividly, with their effects. . . . Surviving by smuggling, by [entrepreneurship], by obtaining papers legal and otherwise, are [rendered] . . .like a major [thriller].  Everyone with relatives who came to America to escape persecution will find something . . .remarkable here."

 -- Bonnie Squires

Main Line Times, 30 Nov. 2021


"What stories Hirsch Bieler [and the authors] have to tell!  Some of the most vivid involve Zelde, the ugly but clever crone who ran Grajewo's smuggling business that helped Hirsch survive [Great War] poverty but also resulted in hair-raising narrow escapes. . . .[Through nimble footwork he prospers in Weimar Germany, the Third Reich and British Palestine, eventually reaching the U.S.  Then] the book's final sections reprint his Polish family's heartbreaking 1939-41 letters pleading for help, and recount his desperate doomed attempts to provide it. . . .A tale of displacement, resilience, loss, and hope."

"Couldn't put it down.  An amazing and wonderful book.  What an essential contribution to history! -- defies superlatives."
