Suzanna Eibuszyc

Author Suzanna Eibuszyc with host Karyn Foley, at the Calabasas Library, discussing her book "Memory is Our Home".

Suzanna Eibuszyc received degrees from the City College of New York where she studied with Elie Wiesel and the University of California. She lives in Los Angeles.

Suzanna Eibuszyc's book "Memory is Our Home" is a powerful biographical memoir based on the diaries of her mother, Roma Talasiewicz-Eibuszyc, who was born in Warsaw before the end of World War I, grew up during the interwar period and who, after escaping the atrocities of World War II, was able to survive in the vast territories of Soviet Russia and Uzbekistan.

Translated by Suzanna Eibuszyc, and interweaving her own recollections as her family made a new life in the shadows of the Holocaust in Communist Poland after the war and into the late 1960s, this book is a rich, living document, a riveting account of a vibrant young woman's courage and endurance.

A forty-year recollection of love and loss, of hopes and dreams for a better world, it provides richly-textured accounts of the physical and emotional lives of Jews in Warsaw and of survival during World War II throughout Russia. This book, narrated in a compelling, unique voice through two generations, is the proverbial candle needed to keep memory alive.
