Summary

"J'ai écrit ce livre en hommage à ma grand-mère maternelle, Idiss. Il ne prétend être ni une biographie, ni une étude de la condition des immigrés juifs de l'Empire russe venus à Paris avant 1914. Il est simplement le récit d'une destinée singulière à laquelle j'ai souvent rêvé. Puisse-t-il être aussi, au-delà du temps écoulé, un témoignage d'amour de son petit-fils." R. B.

Critic reviews

La presse en parle :
"Une manière de chef-d'œuvre, d'une sincérité coupante et sans apprêts."
François Sureau, La Croix

"Robert Badinter raconte Idiss, sa grand-mère adorée, dans un récit bouleversant. Une chronique familiale autant qu'un hommage à la terre d'asile que fut la France avant l'Occupation."
Nedjma Van Egmond, Marianne

Very moving

I loved the story of this simple woman who was loved and respected by her family, her epic journey through Europe.
I was moved to tears by the distress of this Jewish family at the time of the war.
