Czernowitz - Stadt der Dichter [City of Poets] by Amy-Diana Colin & Edith Silbermann

Cover_Czernowitz (2)Info-Buch_Colin, Silbermann


Amy-Diana Colin's (PhD, Yale) much-anticipated book "Czernowitz - Stadt der Dichter [City of Poets]", the "History of a Jewish Family from Bukovina (1900-1948)" is now at the bookseller's!

What a literary delectation, something for winter's eve, but not only! From the blurb we learn: "The report of an exceptional contemporary witness: Edith Silbermann, nee Horowitz, from Czernowitz (Bukovina), actress, reciter, translator, Germanist, publicist, mediator between German and Jewish cultural traditions, narrates her turbulent family history and reports on her youth in Czernowitz before and during WW2. One chapter of this book is dedicated to Paul Antschel (Celan), Edith Silbermann's friend from the early Czernowitz years until his death. It was for both, Paul and Edith, the first love of their youth. [...]"

It is not just a literary delectation, it's also a listening pleasure, since this precious book comes with two audio CDs including recordings from Edith Silbermann's sophisticated recitation program. Read, listen and enjoy! It's a special publication for Czernowitz lovers!
