New book about Jewish Lithuania

“We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust,” by Ellen Cassedy (University of Nebraska Press). Ellen Cassedy sets off into the Jewish heartland of Lithuania to connect with her Jewish forebears and to explore how a post-Holocaust nation is – and is not – engaging with its Jewish history. Probing the terrain of memory and moral dilemmas, she conveys a cautious message of hope. Jewish Book Council calls the book “brilliantly balanced, totally engaging, and constantly penetrating.” Winner of multiple awards.
