    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubThis book is pretty raw and very well written Adam Frankel’s book is divided into 3 parts; War Inheritance and Healing Each division is a fascinating part of his history and besides the specifics the theory can be applied to all of us His hypothesis is that trauma affects many generations This is explored in Part IIPart I gives a brief history of Frankel’s Jewish maternal grandparents and their families during WWII concentrating heavily on his grandfather Gershon his father mother brothers and sisters There are horrors but the author assumes the reader knows enough about the concentration camps to not enumerate many of them He provides facts relevant to the family which I am carefully avoiding who survives and who does not What is of particular interest however is that Gershon the author’s grandfather is involved in something during his time in a Displaced Persons camp that late

    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubI wanted to read this after hearing Adam Frankel on an episode of Family Secrets Dani Shapiro's podcast This book is split into three parts yet still seemed disjointed It was hard to remember in what order some things happened I find it very hard to give a star rating to a memoir Part of me wants to give them all five stars for putting their whole lives out there in a book Another part of me wonders if it's really a

Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubVery self aware author for his age A bit scattered at times but I was able to see how he was trying to pull everything together into one overarching connected story Fascinating yet all too common story of a family affected by generations of hurt and tragedy

    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubThe first third of this book is really gripping with amazing stories of the author's grandparents who survived the Holocaust You could not make this stuff up It is a wonderful well written tale of survival and resilience I did not enjoy the rest of the book as much Though I understood the theme of family dysfunction stemming from possibly epigenetic trauma it felt like the author was overthinking aloud tossing in a lot of psychological terms that ultimately didn't really go anywhere And I couldn't help rolling my eye

    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubFrankel looks at the Holocaust experiences of his maternal grandparents both were in camps during WWII and much of their immediate family was killed and how that experience impacted the lives of their family through the following generations I found the section about his grandparents' lives and his own experience dealing with his relationship with his mother really interesting The pieces about his time as a speechwriter for Obama seemed somewhat out of place and detracted from the storyline

    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubTerrific memoir of discovery and growing up Why is this kind of story so compelling the unravelling of long buried family secrets so mesmerizing? It's been a long time since I read a book so uickly literally unable to put it down for long It starts like one of your usual tales of young Jewish grandparents surviving the horrors of the Holocaust to escape at last to safety in America after WWII They land on their feet and start a family and life is bright and full of promise But trauma left behind interweaves

    PDF/EPUB Adam P. Frankel Å The Survivors PDF/EPUB Ã Å survivors download, The Survivors EpubI usually do not write reviews but this book was so moving that I will do my best to provide my thoughts on this read I heard an interview with Adam Frankel about this book and I knew I wanted to read it I am a child of a Holocaust survivor and found Adam’s personal and family story is told with such raw and human emotion At times I wanted to hug him and tell him he would be OK The story was so compelling I was immediately drawn in and could not put the book down The research he found regarding families of holocaust survivors was affirming for me as I saw some real likeness to my own fami
