Liner Notes

This is a story of life in the '3O's in Memel, Lithuania and of our family's immigration to the United States.
This account relates our journey through pre-war Europe capturing the pathos and humor of our travels, and finally adjustment to America in 1939.

Author, Cherie Goren now residing in Merion, PA
