Surviving Remnant – Memories of the Jewish Greenhorns in 1950s America with Hanna Perlstein Marcus

Set in the deteriorating north end of Springfield, Massachusetts in the 1950s and early ’60s, Surviving Remnant is Hanna Perlstein Marcus’ sequel to her award-winning memoir, Sidonia’s Thread. In Surviving Remnant, she recreates her childhood community of ambitious, humorous, and resilient immigrant refugees who occupy an apartment building, eager to adapt to their new homeland and build new lives for themselves and their children in the aftermath of the Holocaust.
