It is my sad duty to report that Harry Bernstein the author of one of my favorite books of the last few years The Invisible Wall passed away on June 3. If you haven’t yet had a chance to read it I highly recomend doing so. The Invisible Wall is a memoir, published when Mr. Bernstein was 96 years old, of his early life growing up in a lower class English neighborhood around the time of World War I. It’s the story of a street where Jews lived on one side and Christians lived on the other, and the invisible wall that separated the two. It’s also about the war and a love and other events that would, temporarily, bring down that wall.
After writing The Invisible Wall Mr. Bernstein went on to write The Dream and The Golden Willow (an homage to his wife and the love of his life.)
