At the Edge of Memory. A Family Story. Michael King. 2002 1st edition. Penguin, Auckland


In 1911 Michael King’s aunt married a Hamilton man with mysterious origins. He purported to have been born in London, of Scottish descent, but actually was a Jew, a fact he kept fairly well hidden

A nephew in New York spent thirty years tracing other family members who had fled Europe to many parts of the globe and anglicised their surnames
After he had made contact with Michael King’s NZ cousins, then King himself, he kindled in King a desire to research his cousins’ family history and the history of the Jewish people in what is now the Ukraine, Poland and Austria

A very interesting and informative book follows peppered with family photos
As well as family information social and political attitudes of the times are discussed
