Summary:
"Helmi's Shadow is an intimate true story of a stateless Russian-Jewish mother and daughter, the author's grandmother and mother who, with determination and good luck, managed to survive decades of hardship in the hidden corners of war-torn Asia, finally landing after the Second World War in the unlikely safe harbor of Reno, Nevada, to become bona-fide citizens for the first time. The book is also a loving memoir of growing up under the wings of these remarkable women in a unique American family, told through the author's eyes as both a child and young adult"-- Provided by publisher.
