JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general


Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

"Grandma (Safta) Marisha" >from the Yizkor book of Kurzeniac (Kurenets),
Belarus is a story of poverty — a mother who had to wrap cloth around
her son’s feet because she could not afford boots for him — that evokes
the sadness, the struggle and feeling of shame that came along with
being poor. But this particular story is one with a happy ending thanks
to "the wonderful deeds and the heart full of pity" of the title
character, Safta Marisha.
