I feel I can see back beyond even Stella's youth to her mother's and her mother's before her, and maybe even farther back than that.

I feel I can see back beyond even Stella's youth to her mother's and her mother's before her, and maybe even farther back than that.

Over the course of one hundred Saturdays (and more than six years), author Michael Frank listened to Stella Levi share her remarkable life story. Stella was born in Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands of Greece, in 1923. Her childhood was steeped in ancient Judeo-Spanish practices: Visiting the Turkish bath on Thursdays, consuming large sabbath meals on Fridays and storytelling on Saturdays, sewing trousseaus and singing across the cortijos.… But all that ended in 1944, when 1,650 people from the Juderia were deported by the Germans. Most of them—Stella's family and friends—were murdered upon arrival at the concentration camps, but Stella and her sister Renée survived. This is an intimate story of hope and persistence amid hate and devastation, beautifully told and utterly unforgettable. (RR)
