This book is one of Wall Street Journal’s Ten Best Books of 2022, the winner of the National Jewish Book Awards for Holocaust Memoir and Sephardic Culture, recipient of the Jewish Book Council’s Natan Notable Book Award, and Winner of the Sophie Brody Medal.
This remarkable story of ninety-nine-year-old Stella Levi whose conversations with the author over the course of six years bring to life the vibrant world of Jewish Rhodes, the deportation to Auschwitz that extinguished ninety percent of her community, and the resilience and wisdom of the woman who lived to tell the tale. With nearly a century of life behind her, Stella Levi had never before spoken in detail about her past. Then she met Michael Frank. He came to her Greenwich Village apartment one Saturday afternoon to ask her a question about the Juderia, the neighborhood on the Greek island of Rhodes where she’d grown up in a Jewish community that had thrived there for half a millennium. Little did Michael know that a single question would take a turn leading to a six year long conversation!
