My Eyes Looking Back at Me by Author, Menucha Meinstein

Menucha Meinstein’s work is a true testament of friendship. When Leah Cik Roth decides to write her secret memoirs for her children, writer, Menucha Meinstein, walks into her life as a volunteer. The two develop the deepest of human bonds as together they uncover Leah’s lifelong bitterness and suppressed Holocaust memories. Through Soul-Writing, they struggle to relive Leah’s stories, revealing heroic patterns of resilience from the young age of five. Her memories bring out fresh pain, and renewed feelings of loss and loneliness. The Holocaust is merely a backdrop to Leah’s life. Together, the two women share joy in the legacy that Leah leaves for the world.
