MEBANE, N.C. - Aug. 6, 2016 - PRLog -- This collection of memoirs by Rita Berman and her cousins describes how their family suffered through the war-time events of food rationing, evacuations, and the bombing of their grandparents' house and factory in WW2. They are descendants of a blacksmith and tailor who fled to England in the late 1880s to escape the European anti-Semitism of the time. In spite of not knowing English, Rita's maternal grandparents started a blacksmithery and garage, and her paternal grandparents opened a clothing factory in the East End section of London.

After three generations, none of the family members went into the businesses but became artists, an architect, a draughtsman, an accountant, physicists, secretaries, schoolteachers, a London taxi driver, retail store managers, government consultants, a university professor, and a writer. Successful individuals are living in the United States, Canada, Israel and Australia.
