About the Author :

Julian Padowicz holds a degree in English Literature from Colgate University. He has been a documentary filmmaker and producer of audio tapes for most of his adult life, and has won a Golden Eagle Award for his educational film, The People Shop, from the Committee on International Non-Theatrical Events. He lives in Stamford, CT, with his wife.

From Booklist :

Padowicz is a Polish-born Jew who holds a degree in English literature and makes documentary films. This is the second part of a fictionalized memoir based on his experiences fleeing the Germans as a child, accompanied by his mother. Padowicz recounts his experiences as seen through the eyes of an eight-year-old boy. Raised primarily by a Gentile governess, he has little awareness of his Jewish identity, and Padowicz captures the child’s confusion and resentment. His mother is a distant, shallow figure who seems more concerned about her social position than the fate of her child. Yet, she is an oddly sympathetic figure who is more of a victim than a victimizer. Together, child and mother endure mountainous treks, harrowing escapes, and encounters with a variety of rogues as they strive to evade German armies and officials intent on rounding up Jews. This is an engrossing and often-exciting memoir of two people desperately trying to navigate through a broken world. --Jay Freeman

Description du livre Academy Chicago Publishers, United States, 2009. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the second volume of a true story about an eight-year-old Jewish boy in World War II, fighting his own personal war while he and his self-absorbed socialite mother flee the Nazis. Having been brought up before the war by a devoted Catholic governess who has virtually converted him to Catholicism to save his immortal soul, Julian is deeply confused about, and resents, his Jewish identity. In this powerful and absorbing sequel to Mother and Me , the boy, Julian, and his mother, Barbara, survive German bombs and Soviet occupation to finally, in February, 1940, escape into Hungary in a daring and dangerous trek over the Carpathian Mountains, having been abandoned by their treacherous guide. Once in Hungary, Barbara is embraced by her large social circle there and her attempts to sell her jewelry lead her to become the mistress of a wealthy Rumanian Count, and to hide in style on his impressive country estate. The Count turns out to be less than honest and Barbara and Julian must return to Budapest where the Nazis still await her. N° de réf. du libraire UGH9780897335980
