Reviews
"Stunning and powerful. . . . Lev Raphael's memoir is a superb work combining intellectual rigor with emotional honesty in exploring his three-fold identity as a son of Holocaust survivors, a Jew, and a gay man."--Alan L. Berger, Raddock Family Eminent Scholar Chair of Holocaust Studies, Florida Atlantic University
"Part travelogue and part detective story, My Germany is a wholly enthralling, beautifully written story of healing and forgiveness."--Lynne Olson, author of Troublesome Young Men
"Lev Raphael writes with the precision of a neurosurgeon, the warmth of an ancient storyteller, and the soul of a people that has known the extremes of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, love and hate more than almost any other."--The Jewish Bulletin, San Francisco
