1+30, THE BEST OF MY STORY
The stories in this book represent one of the great migrations in HIAS’ history: the resettlement of hundreds of thousands of Jews from the former Soviet Union to become part of the North American Jewish community.
In this book, you will find 30 stories (plus one poem) that were posted on myStory. These selections demonstrate humor, poignancy, realism, and dreams, seen through the lens of those who—for the sake of their own families and future generations—left everything behind to begin anew in freedom and hope.
