Having read many books about the Holocaust, I was drawn to Berger's "Displaced Persons Growing Up American..", as there are few books devoted to the acculturation of Holocaust survivors in America. The psychology of "chronic sorrow" as a result of having lost so many loved ones is revealed in the day to day lives of Berger's hard-working family. So much was never explained to him, and it took maturation and research to be able to write eloquently about his family's trials and tribulations as Jews during World War II. His childhood is revealed within the context of a family who has to "re-create" an extended family in America. I loved the book. CPeyton
