Description

A visit to an abandoned Polish Jewish cemetery in 1993 launches Dan Oren's twenty-year search to solve the mystery of "Who is buried in Sarah's tomb?" A visit with a cousin unearths a breathtaking photograph of a Berlin family wedding from 1926 and leads to discovering their unimaginable post-wedding lives. An archivist in Prague discovers a secret uncle whose celebrity-filled life takes the reader from the halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the treasures of the Vatican. Finding and linking hitherto unknown family--from as ordinary any of us to as internationally-recognized as Philip Roth--this collection of gripping investigative accounts transforms genealogy into a world of exciting historical adventures. When an archbishop, a minister, and a rabbi meet in a cemetery, it is not the set-up for a joke. Rather, The Wedding Photo becomes a dramatic and meaningful encounter of Christians and Jews with the darkest and the brightest sides of humanity.
