Product description

Review

This is a story, beautifully and sensitively told, that is deeply personal and profoundly universal. ‘Among the Reeds’ sheds light on the tragic past, helps us appreciate the present and inspires a more hopeful future. - Tal Ben-Shahar, PhD., author of Happier.

The Holocaust destroyed the lives of millions of Jews. In this gentle memoir, Tammy Bottner rescues several of those lives from oblivion by telling their story. - Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

Product Description

A young Jewish mother. A Nazi occupation bent on genocide. A heart-breaking decision that will tear a young family apart.

Belgium, 1940. Melly Bottner is just eighteen with a three-week old newborn son when the Nazi occupation of Belgium begins. She and her young husband Genek live in fear as it becomes obvious that all Jews will soon be taken. Watching friends and neighbors disappear as the Germans carry out their shocking purge, the young family confronts an awful truth: if they are to survive, they must rip their own family into pieces.

In this biography from Melly's point of view, author and granddaughter Tammy Bottner delivers a true and moving family memoir. This meticulously written and researched account brings to life the horrific decisions Bottner’s grandparents had to make simply to survive. Through their monumental choices, Tammy Bottner's grandparents ensured the survival of their family and made their post-war reunion possible.

Among the Reeds is a deeply personal family memoir that is part-biography, part psychological observation of the extraordinary wartime lives of a persecuted people. If you like true stories of courage, heart-stopping near misses, and tear-jerking choices, then you’ll love Tammy Bottner’s compelling account.

Buy Among the Reeds to discover an astounding tale of family endurance today.
