A WRITER’S JOURNEY
Memoir Finalist 2017
Indie Book Award
Rising from their Eastern European Jewish immigrant roots, my family left me a legacy of tikkun olam, repairing the world. My mother, Estelle Malloy, was born in Boston, where her grandfather, Simon Swig, became the first Jew in the Massachusetts legislature. Her grandfather, David Malloy, ended up as a tailor in the British colony of Bermuda where we are the only Jewish family to have lived on the island for four generations. Estelle met Aaron Levine as students at Radcliffe/ Harvard University, fell in love, and married during World War II.
As a US military intelligence officer, Aaron was assigned to interrogate Nazi Nazi prisoners of war. My father’s letters to Estelle expressed the horrors he saw in the death camps, including the discovery of the underground camp at Nordhausen. His letters are included in this book and the originals are archived in the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati where my father was Chief Financial Officer and encouraged me to work for Jewish agencies, create post-Holocaust programs, and speak/coach on cultural diversity.
