|Gone the Golden Dream||Jan Markell|
The true story of a Jewish family, facing terror and death in Russia, who begins the search for the "golden medineh."
Eliezer, young husband and father-to-be, is the first Leshenotsky to leave his peasant home. Surviving a three-week walk through a Siberian winter and an incredible ocean crossing, Eliezer arrives in America. He is able finally to save enough from his laborer's earnings to send for his wife and the little son he has never seen.
Golda's dreadful voyage with small Joseph comes to an end in the uncertainty and humiliation of the Ellis Island immigrant processing. But the Leshenotskys, finally reunited, are certain that now the dream will come true for them in America.
Imagine their frustration and hopelessness as they try to raise a family on a peddler's wage in the ghettos of New York City.
Son Joseph, after many years of searching, finds out for himself that the dream is an elusive pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Ready to give up in despair, Joe stumbles onto a book in a Las Vegas casino. The truth he finds in the book eventually turns his life around. He is at last able to show his sons also the answer to their personal and national dream.
