Wilson Award and the ALA Andrew Carnegie MedalAn NPR “Great Reads” Book, a Chicago Tribune Best Book, a Seattle Times Best Book, a Time Magazine Best Book, Entertainment Weekly's #1 Nonfiction Book, a Christian Science Monitor Best Book, and a Kansas City Star Best BookPulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink's landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice.In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amid chaos.After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. 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.

    A Beautiful Way to Remember Your Loves Ones

    5/5 Intothewoods912 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Memorial Angel Keepsake Picture Frame (Kitchen) I first received this as a gift from a friend who knew I was struggling with the passing of my grandmother. I was floored when she gave me this. It's one of the most beautiful memorial frames I have ever seen. I honestly don't know how to describe how amazing this is, and how many compliments I have received. I ended up purchasing two more to give as gifts, and the receivers cried when opening them.If you are looking for a way to remember somebody, or to help somebody remember, stop reading and purchase this product.You won't regret it.

    Shoddy, cheap looking

    2/5 Jack Pokrovac - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Memorial Angel Keepsake Picture Frame (Kitchen) I bought 3 of these several years ago and was satisfied. This current purchase shocked me. Although this resembles the ones I purchased in the past, this one is smaller, very cheap and shoddy looking and was missing the cover for the "trinket" box. Instead of a piece of glass in the frame as in my former purchases, there is a cheap piece of cellophane type material. There were smudge marks next to the text on the frame which made the frame look dirty. I'm ashamed to give it to a friend who just lost her mother. The whole ensemble looks like a trinket.

    Remarkable Quality & Beauty

    5/5 D. Cook (Wallkill, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Memorial Angel Keepsake Picture Frame (Kitchen) Purchased this gift for my girlfriend to help celebrate the memory of her recently lost best friend. Somewhat hesitant, due to the price, I wasn't really sure what I was in for as far as quality. To my amazement, this gift was remarkably beautiful, adequately large, attractive, and durable. Wonderfurl, wonderful gift for anyone to remember a lost one!!! Currently sits beautifully on our plant table in our living room and has received several compliments, not to mention inquiries as how to acquire one themselves. Great Buy!!!
