Norma Roth’s past is indeed dark, but her journey is one of enlightenment. Retracing the steps of her early 20th Century ancestors; her own parents included; she is able to come to terms with the muted secrets of her life into them as she takes us to the places in which they lived and allows us to experience some of the Central Europe they knew.
Seventy years after the horrors of Nazi occupation and genocide we, her readers, have yet to come to terms with the stark realities. Journey into a Dark Past is an important addition to post-Holocaust literature and, in its own way, helps each of us deal with our own ghosts.
