THE FAMILY Three Journeys into the Heart of the Twentieth Century

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Geoffrey Cantor

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

David Laskin brings three generations to life in this deeply personal and moving portrait of the HaKohen family, from which he is a descendant. The audiobook, ably read by Geoffrey Cantor, takes the listener from the shtetls of Eastern Europe through the Holocaust to Israel and the United States. Every tale is worth hearing. Whether Cantor is relating the history of the Maidenform Bra Company, life during Palestine’s infancy, or tales of horror during the Holocaust, his presentation has a tone that intimately captures the events and also welcomes the listener into the Laskin family home. As a result, the three parts of the story flow smoothly and separate this book from other, more superficial, works. D.J.S.
