As an eight-year-old girl, Shula watched as a Communist agent padlocked her family's front door, leaving them homeless. Their crime: promoting Jewish observance in the fiercely secular Soviet Union, an offense for which Shula's father would soon be arrested.In this posthumous memoir, based on extensive interviews and accompanied by hundreds of photos, Rebbetzin Shula Kazen tells of unimaginable hardship in the Soviet Union and the triumph of her life in America.
Included are her over five decades in Cleveland, Ohio, where she built a strong Jewish community, prompting the Lubavitcher Rebbe to dub her "Queen of the City."
