  • Мария-Белькинд-cover

    Left to Choose

    Maria Belkind

    The gripping story of a Jewish family over several generations as they struggle to live and love despite harrowing circumstances. We hear the tales of many characters: an abducted child fighting to survive, a wartime engineer serving in the radio intelligence division, a musician who plays in Leningrad under siege, and young people whose quest for spiritual peace takes them to a dangerous place. Touching, nuanced, and often darkly comic, the characters are written with admirable humanity. Woven throughout this narrative is a common thread of the impossible weight of life-threatening decisions the protagonists are forced to make.

    О том, что с ним случилось в годы войны, Яков Капер рассказывал своему сыну Ефиму. Сегодня Ефим Капер – известный врач, уважаемый в общине человек вспоминает:

    “Всю свою сознательную жизнь, а говорят, что сознательная жизнь у ребенка появляется с трех лет, я знал отца и его друзей, с которыми он был в Бабьем Яру. Что касается непосредственно рассказов о Бабьем Яре – эти рассказы мной воспринимались как страшная сказка. Ужасные страдания, которые они испытывали, я еще не мог воспринимать адекватно.

    Hundreds of books have been written about Rasputin, but very few people know that Rasputin himself authored a book. My Pilgrimage to Jerusalem was written as a gift for Tsar Nicholas II in 1915, in a print run of only 50 copies.

    There are few figures in history to whom so much research has been devoted; and about whom so much media, including biographies, memoirs, novels, films and even an opera, have been created, than the Siberian “wise man” Grigory Rasputin (1869-1916).
