I am a Kid from a Jewish Shtetl

Ilya Okh


Without gloss and pretension through the eyes of a thirteen-year old boy, Ilya Okh presents the panorama of the pre-war events of Jewish life in an Ukrainian shtetl and the life of Jewish kids that were swept by WWII in the steppes of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

His travails as a lonely kid in strange and foreign lands on the background of masses of people who were uprooted and thrown into the whirlpool of history.

A very illuminating and unparalleled chapter of Jewish annals.
