A new edition in the «Library of the Holocaust Memoirs» series: The Story of Marta
Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies is pleased to present a new edition of the «Library of the Holocaust Memoirs» series. «The Daughter we have always wanted. The story of Marta» is the first edition of the Center, which has been adapted for readers over 10 years old. The original book was created by Yad Vashem and the Ukrainian version appeared upon the initiative of the NGO «Helsinki Initiative-XXI» – localized in Chortkiv, Marta’s birthtown. Thanks to Tigran Sogoyan, this story talks to us not only through text and family photos, but also through wonderful illustrations. «The Daughter we have always wanted. The story of Marta » is a story of a Jewish child who clung to life despite terrible loss and subsequently found herself in the State of Israel.
