    Just published - a memoir of the historically memorable formative years of the accomplished dance therapist and psychoanalyst Elaine Siegel

    Chaos Unbound: A Jewish Childhood in Nazi Berlin

    by: Elaine V. Siegel

    "There is drama in this memoir of a Jewish childhood in Nazi Berlin. The tightening grip of anti-Semitism, the transformation of local ne’er-do-wells into imperious Brownshirts, the marginalization and degradation of shopkeepers and merchants who resisted Nazi blandishments, and the visceral disgust of many Germans for Hitler undefined all are woven into a story whose very intimacy captures the largeness of its historical moment. It is especially the young Elaine’s clarity of vision undefined her keen understanding of what was happening around her and what was required to safeguard herself and “her adults” undefined that pulls the reader along in this gripping account of Jewish survival in the eye of the Nazi storm."
