Summary
"The moment she discovered the existence of Richard, a long-lost relative, at Israel's Holocaust Museum, Margaret begins an unexpected journey of revelations and connectivity as she tirelessly researches the history of her forgotten Hungarian Jewish ancestors, the Engel de Jánosis. Propelled by a Fulbright cultural exchange that sends her to teach at a Hungarian University, Margaret, her husband and teenage son travel to Pécs, a small town in an increasingly xenophobic and anti-Semitic Hungary. Insightful and heart-wrenching, 'Where the Angels Lived' beautifully documents the relentless determination of a woman picking up the pieces of her family's fragmented history throughout the Hungarian Holocaust. Straddling memoir and reportage, past and present, this story reminds us all that we can escape a country, but we can never escape history"--Page [4] of cover
