Sto­ries of an Imag­i­nary Childhood

  • Review
By – November 7, 2011
In a series of short sto­ries set in Poland dur­ing the 1930’s, Buki­et imag­ines a world that might have been his own if not for the Shoah. His top­ics are var­ied and uni­ver­sal: first love, grow­ing up, and try­ing to get along with peo­ple who are dif­fer­ent. This is an enjoy­able set of sto­ries which res­onates all the more as we real­ize that most of the dynam­ic souls just like these per­ished in the Holocaust. 
Mar­cia W. Pos­ner, Ph.D., of the Holo­caust Memo­r­i­al and Tol­er­ance Cen­ter of Nas­sau Coun­ty, is the library and pro­gram direc­tor. An author and play­wright her­self, she loves review­ing for JBW and read­ing all the oth­er reviews and arti­cles in this mar­velous periodical.
