About Never Tell Anyone You're Jewish:
This is a story of two assimilated Jewish families in Nazi-occupied Poland in the eye of the Holocaust. The two families were joined by marriage after the war and Maria was born soon after. Not surprisingly her mother initially urged her to hide her Jewishness. Later, in old age, she relented, recognising that testimonies make history.
The author describes her early life in Stalinist Poland and her family's emigration to Edinburgh, where they were able to lead fulfilled lives as scientists. Her parents both suffered from life-long flashbacks, while outwardly reacting very differently to the traumas they had suffered. Maria has now chosen to reveal her family's testimonies to honour those that perished.
