I Want You to Know We're Still Here

“Esther Safran Foer is a force of nature: a leader of the Jewish people, the matriarch of America’s leading literary family (her son Jonathan Safran Foer authored Everything Is Illuminated), an eloquent defender of the proposition that memory matters. And now, a riveting memoirist.”—Jeffrey
Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic.
I Want You to Know We’re Still Here is the poignant and deeply moving story not only of Esther’s journey but of four generations living in the shadow of the Holocaust. They are four generations of survivors, storytellers, and memory keepers, determined not just to keep the past alive but to imbue the present with life and more life.
Esther Safran Foer was the CEO of Sixth & I, a renowned center for arts, ideas, and religion in Washington, DC.
