"Hadley Freeman knew her grandmother Sara had lived in France, just as Hitler started to gain power in Europe, but rarely did anyone in her family talk about it. Until long after her grandmother's death, she found a shoebox tucked in a closet. In it was: a photograph of her grandmother with a mysterious stranger; a cryptic telegram from the Red Cross; and a drawing signed by Picasso. This discovery sent Freeman on a decade-long journey, as she tried to uncover the significance of these keepsakes. Her search took her from the Picasso archives in Paris to a secret room in a farmhouse in the Auvergne, from Long Island to Auschwitz. Here, Freeman pieces together the puzzle of her family's past. Sarah had three brothers: Jacques, Henri, and Alex. Their lives in France during the war--at times typical, at times remarkable--illustrates the broad range of experiences of Eastern European Jews. Jacques was one of the first to be arrested and sentenced to the concentration camps, where he died. He was on the same train as Irene Nemirovsky, the author of Suite Francaise. Henri hid in his apartment, and survived. He invented a microfilming machine that the resistance used to protect French secrets. Alex, a successful haute couture designer before the war, served in the French Legion. When he was arrested in 1943 and sent to Auschwitz, he pulled up the floorboards of the train, escaped, and was hidden by communists in the French countryside. He went on to become an influential gallerist, and a close friend of Picasso; the boy who began life in a ghetto ended his days living in the most expensive street in Paris. Sarah left for America. Freeman assumed her grandmother must have been thrilled to escape, but the truth was she was miserable-she'd been tricked by her brothers into leaving in the first place. This is a thrilling family saga, with extraordinary twists, vivid characters, and famous cameos. It describes the Jewish and immigrant experience, discussing issues like assimilation, identity and home-issues still relevant today"--… (lisätietoja)

A group biography of the Glahs family, starting in Chrzanow, Galicia (then Austro Hungarian empire, now in Poland) at the beginning of the twentieth century. Recording the poor but vibrant Jewish community in 1900, followed by persecution of Jews and Polish progroms following the First World War, leading to the Glass (sic) family emigrating to France in the 1920’s.
Freeman then writes short memoirs of the lives of her paternal grandmother and great-uncles, describing how each adapted (or not) to living in Paris and then the threat of antisemitism both from Germany, following it becoming a Nazi state in 1933, and from the French state itself.
In 1937 Sara (Hadley Freeman’s grandmother) travels to the US to marry Bill Freiman, basically an arranged marriage, to escape from Europe, on the basis that this will enable the remainder of her family to emigrate to the US to escape the rise of antisemitism in Europe. Unfortunately this does not happen and we follow the stories of how those in Europe survived, or not, the Nazi occupation of France.
Following the end of the war, the stories continue to show how each surviving sibling lived, with their successes and failures.
An excellent group biography which by looking at individual lives tells the story of European Jews in the twentieth century.
As Freeman says in the final chapter: “The Glasses spanned the twentieth century, from Henri’s birth in 1901 to Alex’s death in 1999. They lived through probably the most dramatic shifts ever endured by the world’s Jews, from the Holocaust to American immigration to the founding of Israel to assimilation, and their lives reflected it all. On an individual level, they took chances that are unimaginable to their children and grandchildren today, because we live in comfort that they created for us.” ( )

House of Glass (4th Estate) is a stunning family memoir by Hadley Freeman that examines themes of identity and belonging as it pieces together the histories of the Glass siblings, the youngest of whom was her grandmother, Sala. Their stories are varied, vivid and heartbreaking, each unfolding during one of the most traumatic periods in Jewish history.
