Danna is the granddaughter of two Holocaust survivors and in this book she talks about the situations in which she has been involved that have made her think about her grandparents’ lives and how they faced their problems in the past. Her grandparents always tried to be kind with other people, even with strangers; they helped her friends and lived without complaining about the bad things that happened to them in the past eve

When Rebecca at Love at First Book invited me to be a part of the #3GAB tour, I immediately agreed because I generally trust her judgment when it comes to books. I’m please to report that she did not disappoint!

3rd Generation and Beyond by Danna Pycher is a short book of life lessons that she learned from being a 3rd generation Holocaust survivor. Simple and heartfelt, she uses her personal experiences from surviving a horrific car accident to an around-the-world journey to fi

This word is Hebrew for “fated” or “meant to be.” And this is how I feel about having been connected to Danna Pycher.

One of my friends sent me a Facebook message that basically said, “here’s my friend’s book, you should read it and put it on your blog and talk to my friend.” Danna and I were connected, she sent me a copy of 3rd Generation and Beyond, and since then, I have made it part of my mission to help promote this book.

Why do I want to help promote this book? For many reasons.

Danna draws inspiration from her grandparents, being Holocaust survivors and a terrible accident that left her handicapped for a long time to write this truly inspiring book. In her book, she addresses valuable life lessons on morality and values which, by reading her novel, I feel she is very passionate about. She speaks about kindness being infectious, how a small act of kindness could change someone’s life for the better. She covers topics such as appreciating what you have, to live in the ...more

I’m grateful to be a part of Danna’s tour for her beautiful little book. When I first heard about it, I was instantly intrigued. Danna is a 3rd generation Holocaust survivor, hence the name of the book. Her grandparents were miraculous survivors of the Holocaust, and Danna has spent a great deal of time reflecting on what that means for her and her family. I knew right away that I wanted to read this book because I have always had a fascination with the Holocaust. I’ve collected many Holocaust ...more

History is important to us. We record it, talk about it, study it, analyze it, write it, and strive to make it. We feel a wide range of emotions about it: proud, joyful, angry, perplexed, ashamed, and devastated. There aren't many other things in life that touch us and teach us quite like history does.

Especially family history. For many of us in the big melting pot we call America, our heritage is a mosh posh my dad likes to call Heinz 57...meaning too many

When Rebecca at Love at First Book approached me with a free Kindle copy to review of 3rd Generation and Beyond about the Holocaust, I admit that I was skeptical. The Holocaust was such a horrifying time period and I had recently read Sarah's Key, a historical fiction novel that brought me to tears recounting agonizing details of young Sarah, a Jewish girl during the time of the French persecution of Jews.

I accepted the book and br
A copy of the book was provided by the author for an honest review.

I haven’t taken on many tours as of late but I couldn't help but to jump at the chance of joining this one. The Holocaust is an event that should never be forgotten and should be embedded in our entire DNA. There are so many important lessons to be learned from it.

3rd Generation and Beyond is part memoir, part self-help book. A lot of the self-help part is common sense but sadly, common sense some of us lack. It’s not until the

My problem is that I don't understand what the point of this book was. It's a list of traits that the author says she has because of the fact that she's part of the 3rd generation. I don't think these traits are inherent to that group, though her stories to describe them may be. But then again, about half the traits discuss her having a terrible car accident, so it appears that the accident is at least as influential to her perspective as being a grandchild of Holocaust survivors. Of course, the ...more

Part self-help, this book is so much more. It's advice- but it's also stories of Danna's family. 3rd Generation inspires and motivates. Makes you think about the legacy you leave behind.

Recommends it for: Young Adults, All ages
In her touching book, 3rd Generation and Beyond, Danna brings a unique, important message that bridges the generation gap by relaying historic stories to today's young people in an easy to digest manner. Everyone can apply these common values to their own lives. Part emotional, part travel log, and overall an easy, worthwhile read.

This one was a different take on the holocaust. Written by a young woman whose grandfather survived the holocaust she sends words of wisdom out in each chapter. Her goal is for people to be kind and to spread their kindness around.
