After a lengthy delay that was unavoidable, Cherie Goren’s Memoir, A Time to Keep is now in print and available on Amazon as a paperback ($14.) and as a kindle book ($7.00). Below is a photo of Cherie (in the middle), me on the left and book designer Krista Nelson on the right. We went out to lunch the other day to celebrate and ate outside at Valley Green, a lovely restaurant in Wissihickon Park in the Philadelphia area of Mt. Airy. A beautiful book and a beautiful day!
Also, I recommend that you watch the vimeo made by Cherie’s nephew last year entitled: Leaving Memel: Refugees from the Reich, inspired by and heavily influenced by Cherie’s book. Here is the link: vimeo.com/256360106/2c142b998f.
If you do read the book and like it, please post a review on Amazon and/or Good Reads, so more people will learn about how Cherie and her family left Memel just in time, before Hitler came and sent Jews to the concentration camps or killed them outright. The book is a good story for teens, since Cherie was in her teens when her family left Memel. But it is also a good book for adults who want to know more about the Holocaust from the viewpoint of a refugee family.
