Two decades before the Holocaust began, an estimated 100,000 to 250,000 Jews were murdered in anti-Jewish pogroms across Ukraine. Lisa Brahin grew up transfixed by her grandmother Channa's stories about her family being forced to flee their hometown of Stavishche, led at first by a gallant American who escorted an exodus of nearly 80 to safety. To validate her grandmother's tales, Lisa forged connections with archivists around the world, and here she tells the remarkable story of this nearly forgotten tragedy.

"A celebration of the essential work of librarians, archivists and genealogists…. This family history of Kyiv is especially potent in this season of Russian-Ukrainian strife."—Library Journal (starred review)
