Nowolipie Street
DL Books, May 2012

by Jozef Hen

…Hen has written a striking memoir. He brings together his artistic prowess and personal experience in this beautiful volume. Nowolipie Street is valuable as a historical account, and as a rich example of the genre. – ForeWord Clarion Reviews

In Nowolipie Street, author Jozef Hen reconstructs the lost world of the Warsaw Jewish community between World Wars I and II. In stunning detail Hen recreates the memory of his childhood, filled with innocence, ambitious dreams, and the love of his family. In this first-ever English translation, Hen provides not only a memoir of his own experiences, but a profound parable that can offer unexpected insights into our own lives.
