Featured Book for June

Buried Rivers: A Spiritual Journey into the Holocaust 

by Ellen Mains

To the disappointment of her parents, Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust, the author began following a Buddhist path at the age of 19. In 2006, Ellen traveled to Poland, the Holocaust’s largest graveyard to reconnect with her family’s tragic history.

This award-winning memoir by a daughter of Holocaust survivors explores the question “How can you still believe in basic goodness?” Beyond recovering her family’s lost history, this intimate memoir reveals powerful connections between Judaism and Buddhism, spirituality and trauma, and intimately explores the challenges of family loyalty, crossing religious boundaries, and opening to the invisible blessings of ancestors.
