Many of the stories included in this book may be considered treasures that have yet to be presented to the Jewish and general public. Some versions of these tales have been published in different anthologies and languages over the years, but most are basically unknown. The author includes stories from varied oral and written sources, mainly Czech, Slovak, German, some Yiddish, as well as Polish and Hungarian. 'Storytelling,' says Nagarajan, 'is perhaps the only tool that creates a path leading through the many layers of the past, shedding light on it without destroying the mystery and magic.'
Nadia Grosser Nagarajan was born in Ostrava, a coal-mining town in Northern Moravia, in the former Czechoslovakia. She was educated in Israel and the United States and received her Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of California at Berkeley. An educator since 1968, she has published children's stories in Israel as well as travel features and miscellaneous articles on literature and folklore in the United States. Nadia Grosser Nagarajan has lectured at several conferences on Jewish education and culture as well as nineteenth century European literature. She has two sons and lives in California with her husband.
