The Heritage

The Heritage is a historical Jewish Fictional novel initially published in Spanish by Jack Michonik and titled “la descendencia.” It was translated into English by Michael B Miller.

Between the two World Wars, the majority of Jewish descent fled Europe in search of safety and stability for their families; this book chronicles their experiences. This interesting story begins with a young man named Leib Edri and how he is responsible for his family after his father’s death. The difficulties in leaving the country to establish a new life while providing assistance to his family from afar are numerous. The mental toll weighs heavily on Leib.

Leib begins his voyage by leaving his hometown of Golochov, where he had lived for 15 years. He knew he would most likely never return to the place he knew as home. It is here where he made his first friends and one of his lifelong pen pals, Berl. The author provides a stirring narrative to convey the suffering that one endures when they must leave all that they know in order to simply survive.

The journey to the new world is educational for Leib. He encounters people from drastically different lifestyles and cultures, learning a lot about life outside of Golochov. Readers will experience the hardships of attempting to establish a new life in a new city through the authors candid portrayal. Thoughtful attention has been given to describe the emotions of those who fled the nation for safety during the wars and how they struggled thinking about the ones who remained back home.

The Heritage by Jack Michonik is a riveting historical fiction novel that will appeal to readers interested in Jewish culture. The journey that Leib takes from Golochov to South America will leave readers with a greater understanding of what it is like to have to do whatever it takes to survive.
