Kirkus Reviews, May 2019: A woman recollects a childhood in Germany upended by the Nazis—and her determination to begin anew without forgetting the past. … She writes plainly, a style that ably conveys an unembellished strength, and her grief is accompanied by a moving expression of gratitude for survival. The brief book is adorned with gorgeous color and black-and-white photography—from various sources—presented on brilliantly glossy pages. This is a stirring testament to a remarkable life, full of both despair and heartwarming triumph.

A survivor’s simply and beautifully conveyed remembrance, powerful and edifying.


What a life Dr. Renate G. Justin led and how well she told in her memoir What I Have To Tell.  From her idyllic early childhood in pre-Nazi Germany, to the horrors she and her family had to suffer under Hitler’s murderous regime, to their escape and eventual safe haven in the United States, it’s a tale almost larger than life, except she did live it.  It’s a success story, but not the usual kind of riches to rags to riches.  Always mindful of the tribulations she and her family suffered under Hitler, Dr. Justin became a stalwart for civil rights, for fairness, for racial equality, a beacon against genocide wherever it raises its vile head in the world.  Hers was not just an American success story, but a saint’s tale.
