When Memory Comes, Paperback / softback Book

When Memory Comes Paperback / softback


Four months before Hitler came to power, Pavel Friedlander was born in Prague to a middle-class Jewish family.

In 1939, seven-year-old Pavel and his family were forced to flee Czechoslovakia for France, but his parents were able to conceal their son in a Roman Catholic seminary before being shipped to their destruction.

After a whole-hearted religious conversion, young Pavel began training for priesthood.

The birth of Israel prompted his discovery of his Jewish past and his true identity.

Friedlander describes his experiences, moving from Israeli present to European past with composure and elegance. The Wisconsin edition is not for sale in the British Commonwealth or Empire (excluding Canada.)"
