"My Dear Children" is the first comprehensive and scholarly look at the anti-Jewish massacres in Eastern Europe from 1917-1921. The story of this forgotten piece of history is told through the rare memoir of a Jewish mother of 12 who survived but then chose to send two of her children to an orphanage in South Africa. This time period has been overshadowed by the Holocaust, and much of the evidence was locked away in Soviet archives, untouched until the fall of the Soviet Union. Groundbreaking scholars today say these massacres should be seen as a precursor to the Holocaust. Learn about this fascinating piece of history and the poignant personal story through which it is told. If your roots lie in Eastern Europe, and nearly 80% of the world's Jewry does, then this is not to be missed.
