Holocaust Survivor Cookbook, Collected From Around the World by Joanne Caras

In 2007, Joanne Caras compiled and self-published the “Holocaust Survivor Cookbook: Collected From Around the World.” The book contains the stories and recipes of 129 survivors, but doesn’t connect the two well. It encourages readers to prepare the recipes and share the stories of the survivors with their families. The recipes, though, are true to the way Caras received them — sometimes calling for a bissel of salt, or missing a step in the instructions. She decided to maintain their integrity as artifacts, even though it sometimes makes the dishes difficult to re-create.
