About the Author

Arwen Donahue has served as program coordinator in the department of oral history at the United States Holocaust Museum and managed its Post-Holocaust Interview Project. She is the author of Landings: A Crooked Creek Farm Year.


"Until Donahue and Howell turned their recorders and cameras on these well-chosen survivors living in Kentucky, no one had taken the time to ask how these solitary transplants made new lives for themselves and their children in rural middle America. The stories and images reproduced in this book are both moving and arresting. We owe Donahue and Howell a great debt for rescuing them before they disappeared down the trapdoor of historical memory." -- Lawrence N. Powell, author of Troubled Memory: Anne Levy, the Holocaust, and David Duke's Louisiana

""Fascinating... a unique work of traditional history and contemporary art." --

"Each of the stories can stand on its own as a fascinating example of what has transpired for Jews outside of New York City." -- David Wallace, Community (Jewish Community Association of Louisville)

" This Is Home Now focuses on the overlooked stories of Holocaust survivors who relocated to the commonwealth." -- Lexington Herald-Leader

"Donahue offers many interviews that reveal the horrible things the Nazis did and the harmful effects on the survivors." -- Multicultural Review
