Months later, several health professionals faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days at Memorial, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are in America for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, Five Days at Memorial radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis. From the Hardcover edition.

About this book
"An indispensable sourcebook... Emphasis falls on the variegated, often joyful, culture of the Polish Jews, on what existed before the garden was ruined." --Geoffrey Hartmann, The New Republic "From these marvelous selections, one can see an entire culture unfolding." --Curt Leviant, New York Times Book Review "This newly revised version of the classic study... is a pleasure for the eye and the soul! One of the seminal studies of the impact of the Shoah on European Jewry, it is even more moving in its new incarnation than in its original version. More than a collection of studies of books of remembrance and mourning, this volume asks how one can mourn for a world lost and still live in the present and the future." --Sander L. Gilman "Kugelmass and Boyarin have done a splendid job of combing the vast memorial book literature to select the most revealing accounts of Jewish life in interbellum Poland. Ordinary people speak in this volume with an immediacy and poignancy that cannot help but touch the reader. In the time since it first appeared, From a Ruined Garden has become a classic. Its reappearance in an updated and expanded form is most welcome." --Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett "In this magnificent collection, the editors combine a profound 'feel' for the vanished world of Polish Jewry, the anthologist's skill at selecting the telling example, and the anthropologist's sophisticated understanding of how these testimonies should be read. A marvelous introduction to this rich literature." --Peter Novick Polish Jewish survivors of the Holocaust compiled memorial books to preserve the memory of their destroyed communities. They describe daily life in the shtetl as well as everyday life during the Holocaust and the experiences of returning survivors. These memories paint a haunting picture of a way of life lost forever.

    Experience the Iliad again for the first time

    5/5 Judith Moore - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Memorial: A Version of Homer's Iliad (Kindle Edition) I have read many transltions of the Iliad and taught selections from it at the university level, but this is something different. With the narrative stripped away and the deaths and similes foregrounded, the poem is much shorter and even starker than the original. Oswald explains the differences in how she treats the two aspects of her version, and there's a concluding essay by Eavan Boland that highlights the technique Oswald uses of repeating the simile sections. I will read this intense and moving version many more times than once. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 5, 2013

    Brilliant idea done brilliantly

    5/5 Stephen Sossaman (Napa CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Memorial: A Version of Homer's Iliad (Hardcover) Alice Oswald has written a fabulous "version" of the Iliad as interesting as Christopher Logue's reworkings. This long poem is a series of death scenes, some just one line long, followed by an apt simile, so that every human war death is illustrated by some natural occurence, often involving predatory birds or the ocean. Oswald's frame, an opening listing of names emulating war memorials and a closing series of twelve similes, is inspired. My review at goes into more detail, but anyone who enjoys Homer should find this distillation a remarkably moving work. Brilliant imagery.

    An Oral Cemetery

    PROTESILAUSECHEPOLUSELEPHENORSIMOISIUSLEUKOSDEMOCOONDIORESPIROUSPHEGEUSIDAEUS. . .Eight pages, five hundred names, the roll-call of the dead in the Trojan Wars, they call to mind the names chiseled into the white marble of so many war memorials, filling four sides of a towering column. British poet Alice Oswald's poem, subtitled "a version of Homer's ILIAD," begins not in verse but in cold statistics. She has extracted the names of every person killed, from Protesilaus down to Hector, without regard for heroism or rank, or even whether they were Trojan or Greek. War is war, death is death, no matter the reasons for which the armies were fighting.Then she goes through again, offering a brief eulogy or epitaph on all the slain warriors for whom Homer provides enough detail. But these passages are not strict translations of Homer. As she says herself: "I work closely with the Greek, but... 5/5 Roger Brunyate (Baltimore, MD) - See all my reviews, July 20, 2016

    It smelled horrible. It ended up in the trash

    1/5 vashti - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Garden Memorial Book I don't usually post reviews but I was so angry when I just opened this package. It looked as if it was already used. It smelled horrible. It ended up in the trash. I can understand why and how how a company could sell this in the condition it was in., November 6, 2015

    Mixed feelings but this is a very good and beautiful product!

    5/5 CJ Sandoval (Wisconsin) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Garden Memorial Book I honestly didn't want to review this because I'm still grieving. I have no idea why some people gave a lot of bad reviews. I received mine, cried, but looked at it and I was so happy because it is very nice. I only buy the best for my fur kids. Unfortunately I lost one. I happened to see this and bought it without even looking at the reviews. I honestly didn't know or I forgot that it came with a battery operated candle which just really made even nicer as a package. I'm going to try to find solar powered flowers or something to put inside the small vase. This is really a nice product, I'm not sure why other's gave it bad reviews.

    Memorial book reads: I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
