More About This Title In the Garden of Memory


The story of the Horowitz family follows the lives of four generations of Polish Jews who lived through the turbulent twentieth century. Full of tales of bravery as well as the comical anecdotes of everyday life, the book follows the family members as they are dispersed around the world—to European spas, tsarist prisons, Soviet war camps, and the British RAF. One became an undercover agent, another a zoologist in France, another a leading Freudian psychiatrist. Amazingly only two members were victims of the Holocaust, though the Second World War left lasting psychological effects on all the survivors. However, this is ultimately an uplifting story—of a family that never gave up hope and never gave in.
