Reviews of  My Life through My Dresses - Growing Up Socialist

..."Dresses" is above all an autobiography of Berkovich's formative years in Kiev where Jews would always be  second-class citizens, she says in her book. It may be written for adults, but "Dresses" also is a good gift for any young adult who has grown in a land of privilege and plenty."
