Kind words from Laurie W. with special praise for the graphic designer.

I just read your book cover to cover this morning and cried several times. It's a powerful, emotional story. I love all of the family photos and the artifacts your family held onto. It was moving to hear a personal account of people saved by De Sousa Mendes and in a few short pages you painted an unforgettable portrait of the man and his wife. The story of your sister was a complete surprise and really touched me. I like the way the book design anchors the reader in time and place with the maps and dates inset. What a journey you took to unearth all of this history. And how meaningful. Laurie W.
