Summary"Anne Karpf's parents survived the Nazi Holocaust. Her mother, a concert pianist and soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic when she was eighteen years old, was a survivor of Płaszow and Auschwitz concentration camps; her father survived several Russian labour camps. When they came to Britain in 1947, their pasts came with them... Anne Karpf explores the profound impact of her parents' wartime experiences on her daily life. [Karpf combines an] account of her parents' survival, a sharp examination of the history of British attitudes to Jews and to the Holocaust, and [turns] an often wryly comic eye on the parent-child struggle." —Back cover
