A monument to the women of Terezín who saw beyond indescribable horror and sent the food of their hearts to nourish ours.-- "Newsweek"
The work of women whose memories were distorted by starvation, the book born in Terezín is both intimate and disturbing--a poignant reminder of a lost world and a spirit that refused to die.-- "People Magazine"
Not a cookbook, though it has seventy recipes, but a Holocaust document, compiled as an act of defiance in a concentration camp-- "The New York Times"
Those brave women contributed something of tremendous value, not simply an historical document but a lesson in humanity.-- "Los Angeles Times"
A story of the survival of the spirit amid the horrors of the Holocaust.-- "The New York Times"
Cooking is this book's subject matter, but survival is its theme; it is both moving and paradoxical that this material was collected by starving internees.-- "Library Journal"
Their food comes not from the concentration camp, but from their pasts, from the days when they had cooked in freedom, when they had dinners to plan and holidays to celebrate.-- "Associated Press"
The precious pages of Mina Pachter's cookbook are full of snapshots of life before and during World War II, inside and outside the concentration camps.-- "The Review of Higher Education"
A story of recipes and resistance.-- "Pbs, Jim Lehrer News Hour"
