"One of the best books of 2011..".A nerve-wracking saga in which
life and death depend on a capricious fate...absorbing
lucidity...vivid portraits...simple moral vision that resonates: "I
became immunized against prejudice." A testament of remarkable
clarity and humanity, wrung from dark experience.- KIRKUS REVIEWS.
***Surviving the Holocaust by a hair, Anders became a brilliant
scientist. Part I is a memoir of his youth, including the Soviet
and German occupations of Latvia. Part II discusses, with
objectivity and precision, Latvian conduct during WWII. -ANDREW
EZERGAILIS, Professor of History, Ithaca, NY. ***Anders survived by
an outright lie (invented by his father) that his mother was a
German foundling raised by a Jewish couple. His father was soon
executed, but Edward and his mother bluffed their way through the
nightmarish years of the German occupation (1941-1945). -MORRIS
HALLE, Institute Professor of Linguistics, MIT, Cambridge, MA.
