Shattered Stones, Scattered Seeds: The Story of a Shtetl and a Family Who Lived There
April 2015

Family mysteries often remain tangled for decades, just waiting for someone to pick up the thread and begin to unravel the web. Filled with questions, the author puzzles over her family history. What was life like for her father growing up in the Galician shtetl of Borchov at the turn of the last century? Why did her Grandpa leave for New York so suddenly? And why did her Grandma never leave, even after her two sons did? In Shattered Stones, Scattered Seeds, Myrna Neuringer Levy, inspired by a photograph of Grandmother Clara, explores her family background, through a combination of letters, photographs, the Yizkor Book, memoirs, and her own memories.
