Summary
Written by undernourished and starving women in the Czechoslovakian concentration camp, the pages of this books are filled with recipes for making beloved dishes in the rich, robust Czech tradition. Sometimes steps or ingredients are missing, the gaps a painful illustration of the condition and situation in which the authors lived. Reprinting the contents of the original hand sewn book, In memory's kitchen is a beautiful memorial to the brave women who defied Hitler by preserving a part of their heritage and a part of themselves, proving that the Nazis could not break the spirit of the Jewish people.--Back cover.
