Re: GREAT BOOK on Eastern European Jewish Life #galicia

I haven't read Abraham's Duker's criticism of "Life is with People," but when
I read the book itself, I thought it was absurdly unrealistic, sentimental
and romantic. I have the same opinion of certain other "wishful thinking"
depictions of Eastern European shtetl life, including a book by [an] Abraham Heschel which I think is called "The Earth is the Lord's."
