Please Say Kaddish For Me
based on a true story…
So much of history is overlooked or never brought to light as it should. The atrocities of the pogroms were terrorism plain and simple. Yet through it all, love prevails.
Barefoot, wearing only a nightgown, sixteen-year-old Havah Cohen alone escapes the brutal massacre by the Czarist tyranny that destroys her home and slaughters her family on a frigid November night in 1899.
Love ignited, lost and found, insurmountable struggles and challenges, Kishinev’s Jewish pogroms and all odds against them, Havah and her soul mate, Arel, withstand the storms of life in this unforgettable story of a time and place rarely spoken of.
The sequel, From Silt and Ashes (W&B Publishers, November 2015), is just as compelling. The love and dedication of family and friends run deep and far. It picks up with Havah and Arel in Kansas City and loved ones still in the old country struggling with persecution and survival—faith, hope and love their solid foundation.
