As daughters of Holocaust survivors, we were buds growing from nearly dead branches, writes artist Mindy Weisel in 'Daughters of Absence,' "But we are the daughters of the future. We turned to the artistic and the creative expressions of life’s beauty in celebrating their survival." In this moving tribute, a distinguished group of creative women collaborate to reveal what it was like to grow up in the shadow of their parents’ Holocaust ordeal and how they transformed that legacy into the beauty of their films, art, photographs, poems, stories, and lives. So much has been written about the horrors -- this book is a moving tribute to the human spirit.

Baker & Taylor
