Susan Kushner Resnick
Age, memory, identity: these are the issues Susan Kushner Resnick addresses in her memoir, You Saved Me, Too: What a Holocaust Survivor Taught Me About Living, Dying, Loving, Fighting, and Swearing in Yiddish (Globe Pequot/Skirt!, $24.95). Resnick speaks directly to a virtually family-less Holocaust survivor, whom she befriends as he lies on his deathbed in a nursing home. That relationship forces Resnick to face her ambivalence about being Jewish. Resnick is the author of two book of nonfiction, Sleepless Days: One Woman’s Journey Through Postpartum Depression and Goodbye Wifes and Daughters.
