The narrow street where Harry Bernstein grew up, in a small English mill town, was identical to countless other streets in countless other working-class neighborhoods of the early 1900s, except for the "invisible wall" that ran down its center, dividing Jewish families on one side from Christian families on the other.

Appena finito di leggerlo, solo una parola...bello !!
Harry, Lily, Arthur, sono solo alcuni dei nomi dei personaggi di questo libro che ho racchiuso nel mio cuore, per non dimenticare la signora Bernstein, grande donna.
E ancora una volta sono le donne a essere grandi protagoniste, questa mamma, che si
ritrova da sola a dover crescere e mandare avanti un'intera famiglia, ben 6 figli, instancabile, fiera e coraggiosa e salda nei suoi principi.
Siamo agli inizi del 1900 poco prima che scoppi la prima guerra mondiale, un libro autobiografico, raccontato con gli occhi e la dolcezza di Harry, 4 anni, guardatevi
la copertina del libro, per me bellissima.
Racconta, in prima persona della sua infanzia, nel seno di questa famiglia e sopratutto di come è vivere in quella determinata strada, tra povertà, stenti e diverse ideologie.
Una strada divisa da "un muro invisibile" che divide i cristiani dagli ebrei..
È mancata la 5 stellina perche il finale buonista "da vissero felici e contenti" mi ha lasciata perplessa..
"Si piegò sulla culla e prese il bambino in braccio e lo tenne stretto a sè, e ci fu
un'espressione sul suo viso che già le avevo visto prima, altre volte.
Era la stessa che aveva quando guardava il suo bambino, o uno chiunque di noi, ed era
uno sguardo che solo una mamma può avere." ( )

This is the story of Harry Bernstein's life as a very young child growing up in early 20th century England on a street people by Christians on one side and Jews on the other. Despite their proximity and interdependence, there is an "invisible wall" that separates them. The Bernstein family was very poor (reminded me of "Angela's Ashes") with a loutish father who spent much of his income on booze and gambling. Then Harry's sister falls in love with a Christian boy across the street and things begin to change.

It was so interesting to read about something I knew absolutely nothing about and was amazed by how vivid Mr. Bernstein's memories were. ( )

Touching story written by 96 year-old, of his growing up near industrialized Manchester England in the 1910s and 20s. Stories of the hardscrabble families on his street, divided by "race" as it were. Nice snapshot of a way of life in which the world was anyplace reachable by foot, and ancient traditions -and religious biases - unquestioningly ruled (Jews and goys in equal measure). Though the book centers around Harry's sister's forbidden love affair, many streetwise anecdotes, scandals and funny characters contribute to a fond memoir. My only objection, as with other personal histories, is the sense I have of embellishment, as well as the overuse of dialogue, which is obviously a liberal use of license. ( )

This is a memoir written by a 96 year old man, looking back on his childhood in Europe centered around World War 1. Harry, a small child for most of the novel, tells of the anti-semitism on his street, and the occasional joyful joining of the two religions on it (Judaism and Christianity). The memoir also focuses on his sister falling in love with a Christian.

This book didn't grip me in the way that a great memoir could, but I'll be damned if it wasn't written superbly or made me tear up at the ending. It didn't bring much of anything new to the table, instead preferring to highlight the age-old theme of "We are all the same; do not let our divisions, religious or otherwise, separate us."

But for me, it was touching. I won't be racing to the bookstore to buy the sequel for this book, but I'm glad that I read it. ( )

Dedicated to Ma, who gave us so much, and received so little. Can this book make up for it? Can anything?

Outwardly, I suppose, our street looked pretty much the same as any other in the working-class section of a Lancashire mill town did in those days.
