East Central Europe

"In How They Lived, Koerner shows the realities behind the nostalgia; a diverse world composed of individuals, not stereotypes. The book that began on a mournful note on the deaths of Hungarian Jews ends up as a rich and colorful exploration of their lives. It is refreshing to see the faces and to discover the connections between them. Koerner has revived the world of Hungarian Jewry in our historical imagination, and his book is a reminder that, ultimately, their lives outshine their deaths."
