Inheritance: Stories of Memory and Discovery weaves together pictures and stories in tribute to how memory and memorabilia can still link us to even a devastated past. Each of the six illustrated chapters conveys a single Jewish family’s journey before, during, and after the Holocaust. Artist and author Leslie Starobin interviewed, among others, the son of a mortar operator in the Jewish Brigade of the British army, the daughter of a decorated Soviet military officer, and a child survivor from Kraków who commemorated his war heroes in a sketchbook. Starobin composed still-life montages from “the things they carried” and passed down to their children and grandchildren.
