Lev Raphael: My Germany

Portrait Lev Raphael

Lev Raphael is considered one of America’s earliest "Second Generation" writers, publishing fiction that explores the impact of the Holocaust on the children of survivors from the late 1970s onward. Having grown up in a world haunted by secrets and the ghosts of relatives and friends lost in the Holocaust, Lev Raphael decided to confront his family’s past and traveled to Germany. The result is not only his book "My Germany," part travelogue, part detective story, but also a deep affection for the country, new friends, and an urge to return.
