Description: Joseph Berger's beautifully written and beguiling account of how one family of Polish Jews -- with one son born at the close of World War II and the other in a "displaced persons" camp on the margins of Berlin -- narrowly survived Hitler's atrocities and managed to emerge anew amid the unforgiving and often bewildering landscape of Manhattan's Upper West Side and the Bronx in the 1950s and 1960s.

In vividly recreating his parents' harrowing experiences in the light of his own childhood among refugees in America, Berger's Displaced Persons speaks directly to a little-known slice of Holocaust history, illuminating as never before the plight of 140,000 refugees who came to the United States between 1947 and 1953. Showing readers this vanished world through the eyes of a bright and perceptive young boy, the book's engagingly episodic nature manages to capture all the poignant shadings, telling minutiae, and stubborn intractability of displaced life. For as Berger explains, looking back on his five decades of resilience and struggle, "I am a refugee, and somewhere I will always be one".
