An Immigrant's Tale "Mishbucha—The Family"
New book combines fact and fiction in a riveting tale that follows one family’s journey
Lutz, FL (Vocus) March 20, 2010 -- Author Golda Fruchter Brunhild recalls her grandmother Sara Barscht
Goldschrader as always being warm and loving, gentle and giving, always with a smile and a hug. But more than
that, she was an amazing woman who through great effort, and many personal tribulations succeeded in realizing
the American Dream. Brunhild shares Grandma Gold’s story as well as those of her loving and numerous family
members in Mishbucha—The Family.
Family—mishbucha—was always Grandma Gold’s focus, from the very beginning of her life in the small Polish
shtetle, the village of Ostraviska. Family surrounded her there—yes, often critical, overwhelming, and disagreeing
among themselves, yet always offering love and support. Yiddish was their language—the mother language of the
Jews of Eastern Europe. Today, it is considered out of date. In writing the story of her ancestors’ lives, the author
has used some of the more Yiddish terms, some now even in use by non-Jews of the modern world.
Mishbucha—The Family is a fictionalized version of stories and legends that came down in Brunhild’s family
over the generations. The author combines imagination and facts to create a dramatic retelling of their family’s
lives. While the major events in the story are based on actual events, basically it is still a work of fiction. Filled
with fascinating characters and an engaging plot, readers are sure to enjoy this entertaining read.
