ESCAPES, A Memoir — by Simon Wainrib

Founder of the Berkshire Bach Society, Simon Wainrib passed away on March 10, 2013, but before he died, he shared his remarkable story in this moving and engrossing memoir. Simon chronicles his family’s uprootings and relocations during his formative years, first in Germany, then in France, finally in Spain, after a successful escape over the Pyrenees during the turbulence of a somber chapter of European history. Yet, his memoir conveys his ever-strong, unquenchable lust for life.
