Best type of memoir
I alternate my listening between fiction and non-fiction. For non-fiction listening I enjoy memoirs and autobiographies and this is one of the best I have heard. I enjoyed this book because of the combination of personal stories mixed with history. You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this book although I do think there will some extra resonance for Jewish listeners in this book.

A Clear Pane in a Broken Window
I selected this title because I wanted to better understand the life of the refugee, the Syrian, the Latino, etc.of today. But through this story, Berger tenderly conveys and Guidall masterfully relates something unique to the Jew, a people for whom my heart freshly breaks. I am in awe of Berger's family tribe as it blooms from its holocaust-tortured seeds. Through his keen observations, capable journalistic skill, and obvious familial love, I was able to become for a bit a member of this family. He made it personal.
