really liked it

An interesting memoir, the story of the author's grandparents' lives after the Holocaust, interspersed with the tale of their suicide. The language was poetic, and even though it was translated, the dialect was retained, and gave a sense of not only place, but personality. The author wishes she knew more about her grandparents inner selves, and I was left with the same feeling, particularly the grandmother. Short, poignant without a bit of sappiness, a good peek into the private lives of two people.
