This book takes the reader through Dr. Wlodzimierz Szer's childhood in Yiddish prewar Warsaw, adolescence and imprisonment in wartime Russia, to the brutal reality of immediate postwar Poland, and the years of the socialist regime. Although largely autobiographical, the book provides a historically and intellectually compelling analysis of the social and political situation in Poland and Soviet Russia from the early 1930s to 1967.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The memoirs of Wlodzimierz Szer (1924-2013), To Our Children, were originally written and published in Polish in 2013, appearing three months after Szer passed away in the United States at the age of eighty-nine. This fact alone--that he composed his memoirs in Polish--is an important indicator of Szer's deep connection to Polish culture and identity. ... These memoirs document the trials and tribulations of a man steeped in both Jewish and Polish cultures, a relic of a past that is no more." --Joshua D. Zimmerman, Yeshiva University, The Polish Review Vol. 63 No. 4

--Joshua D. Zimmerman "The Polish Review "
