內容簡介 As the lone Memory-Maker, Miriam Moskavitz's memories are as much a result of her collective culture as her own life experiences. Five stories speak about losses, traumas, childhood memories, joy and love. We witness the struggles of Miriam's refugee grandparents to survive in the early 20th century. Their resilience and determination to adapt to a new life is likely to have been passed onto Miriam. In spite of the difficulties in her childhood and her low self esteem, she uses her determination and deep compassion to fight injustices for animals and humans. Raised without a strong sense of her Jewish identity, yet imbued with a cultural awareness, Miriam's eyes are opened to the love of her heritage by Ben, the love of her life. But as with the other members of her family, she is destined to lose the one she really loves. Her strong resilience never leaves her, even when she is older. Miriam is not fleeing a pogrom, and she is not a refugee, but her grandparents' stories have come full circle as she is ready to start a new life in a new country, alone. Scared but full of hope, Miriam is the lone memory-maker.
