Glenn Kurtz has written something that transcends categories. It is a detective story; with the picture of a community and its mysteries coming into focus after fascinating and laborious research. It is an intimate kind of history told through ordinary people surviving extraordinary times. It is also a meditation on memory and loss. In this way it transcends its subject matter and serves as an open door for us to examine our own lives and communities; what is forgotten and what we choose to preserve against the endless march of time.
The reader has also done an extraordinary job with the nuanced dialects of the characters portrayed. In every aspect I love this book.

Not only is 3Minutes a great read/listen, it has laid the foundations for the offspring of lost generations to find their "roots" and for survivors to reclaim their childhoods, murdered family members and native home. Kurtz's book is a gift to all. Kurtz weaves the discovery, detective work and intrigue into a lively and gripping narrative. His documentation of the Jews' suffering under the evil Nazis is a poignant reminder in the current waive of neo-Naziism. A must read!
