Annette Libeskind Berkovits was born in Kyrgyzstan and grew up in postwar Poland and the fledgeling state of Israel before coming to America at age sixteen. Despite being uprooted from country to country, Berkovits has channelled her passions into writing. She has published two memoirs, short stories and a poetry chapbook. Three years after her father's death, Annette was going through his things and found a box of tapes—several years' worth—recounting his spectacular life, triumphs, and tragedies. Nachman Libeskind's remarkable story is an odyssey through crucial events of the twentieth century. With just a box of tapes, Annette Libeskind Berkovits tells more than her father's story: she builds an uncommon family saga and reimagines a turbulent past. In the process, she uncovers a stubborn optimism that flourished in the unlikeliest of places. Last year the Marek Edelman Dialogue Center translated and published the book in title "Życie pełne barw" [The Life Full of colours]. During the meeting, Joanna Podolska asks Annette Libeskid Berkovits about process of writing and family story.
