Reviews

"Esther Safran Foer is a natural storyteller--and what a story she has to tell! A tribute to human resilience, her family saga is full of heart and the breath of life. It is a perfect tonic for our cynical times. I loved it."--Kati Marton, author of The Great Escape

"Stirring and inspiring, this remarkable book is a labor of love and hope. Esther Safran Foer goes on a brave journey abroad and into the past in search of unsettling family secrets buried in the horrible darkness created by Nazism. Her odyssey is both harrowing and heroic. When she returns, she can never see things in the same way, and neither can we. This book is a little triumph over fascism."--Congressman Jamie Raskin

"I Want You to Know We're Still Here is a beautiful exploration of collective memory and Jewish history, of Esther Safran Foer's personal quest to find any trace of a murdered sister, to track down the family who saved her father, and to ensure that the names from her family's past live on."--Nathan Englander, author of kaddish.com

"Esther Safran Foer has written an honest, painful, and ultimately uplifting story of life after tragedy. This book is, above all else, the redemption song of her family and of her people. It should be read by everyone."--Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic
