Judith Fein, Paul Ross / Authors / "The Spoon From Minkowitz"

Judith Fein is an award-winning travel journalist and playwright. Paul Ross is a photo- journalist and Fein’s husband.

The Spoon from Minkowitz: A Bittersweet Roots Journey to Ancestral Lands explores Fein’s European roots, what the Old World was like, and what remains of the places so many of our ancestors left behind when they came to America. Fein takes the reader through graveyards, private audience with the Gypsy Baron of Moldova, meets the last Jew standing, communes with the dead, quaffs cognac with Russians, wanders among ruins, and hears the call of the ancestors driving her forward.
