Amidst the Shadows of Trees
"The nightmarish cover art taps into familiar archetypes of perverted childhood, lost innocence and danger in the woods – themes reminiscent of such fables as “Hansel and Gretel” – and foreshadows the astounding narrative of how the now 73-year-old Brysk’s survival as a child of the Holocaust."
Marilyn Krainer – Michigan Jewish History, vol. 48, 2008, 64-65
Etched in My Memory
"This collection brings the reader beyond a description of the horrors of the Holocaust into the heart and soul of a survivor, way beyond the material losses of the experience, to the core of what surviving such horror can leave inside a person, never to be forgotten."
Roberta Goldberg, January 2016
The Stones Weep
"Miriam Brysk follows her memoir, Amidst the Shadows of Trees, with the engaging The Stones Weep: Teaching the Holocaust through a Survivor's Art. This book is an effective tool for teaching young children through the stunning full-page color reproductions of her art work concerning the most terrible time in history."
