In 2015 is het boek Everything Came To Me uitgekomen. In dat boek heb ik het levensverhaal van mijn schoonmoeder, Rachel Faltin-Székely, opgetekend. De tekst op de achterzijde van de biografie luidt:

Rachel Faltin-Székely was born in 1934 in Arad, Romania. Being a Jewish child under the “Third Reich”, her life was naturally threatened. After the War, the communists arrived and life became very hard for a family of intellectuals like theirs. In 1961, she and her family were able to immigrate to Israel where Rachel started a career as a singer. She had performances in Israel and the United States and then later, settled in Europe. Since 1967, she has been living in Geneva and still teaches singing. The love of music forms a Leitmotiv and creates a positive theme in the book. Rachel looks at the bright side of life and enjoys her blessings: “Everything Came To Me”.

De biografie is tegelijk gepresenteerd met mijn moeders boek, It is stjerrend wier, heite. In dat boek heeft zij waargebeurde verhalen van Friezen opgetekend. Zie Interviews en artikelen.

De biografie (oplage 250 exemplaren) is uitverkocht, maar mijn moeder haar boek (oplage 400 exemplaren) is nog te bestellen. Meer informatie vind je op de website van de Lytse Geast.
