Book Talk: So They Call You Pisher!

Part of the European Days of Jewish Culture 2018

Writer and broadcaster, Michael Rosen presents his memoir, So They Call You Pisher! (Verso Books). In the midst of the Rosens' often hilarious north London life, there was a mystery: what happened to his paternal grandfather's side of the family? Thanks to some old postcards turning up ten years ago, some photos sealed up in a cupboard in Connecticut for 70 years, and The Wiener Library itself, he started to piece together what grandfather Morris had been up to in the USA, and ultimately what befell Morris's brothers and sisters in Poland and France. But why did he spend so much time and effort trying to find out?
