the anthology Before All Memory is Lost , has
received the 2017 Canadian Jewish Literary Award in the category of Holocaust
Literature.
No doubt, the stories of these courageous woman will enrich the knowledge of
future generations about the power of the human spirit and enable readers to
grasp a deeper understanding of the Holocaust - one story at a time.
Holocaust Literature:
Before All Memory Is Lost : Women's Voices from the Holocaust (Azrieli
Foundation), edited by Myrna Goldenberg, is the first anthology ever published
by the Azrieli Foundation. Twenty-five women (including one chapter from Chana Mindla
Wolkowicz) reflect on their experiences of
survival. Each account is woven together by a common thread: women resisted and,
ultimately, triumphed against the brutality they faced during the Holocaust. The
book features a wide variety of narrative styles, including prose, poetry and
diary excerpts.

"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances
which permit this norm to be exceeded - here and there, now and then -
are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often
condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people.
Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes
happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into
abject poverty. ... This is known as "bad luck" " Robert Heinlein
