Lithuanian Holocaust Heritage
Bay State Reader’s Advisory 
“A beautifully written memoir…A very well-produced audiobook with an excellent narrator…I highly recommend it!”

Daiva Markelis and Ellen Cassedy over a coffee at the Corner Bakery
Daiva Markelis, author of White Fields, Black Sheep: A Lithuanian-American Life:
“An especially important book for English-speaking Lithuanians who live in the West…”

Outlook: Canada’s Progressive Jewish Magazine
“…weaves together a tapestry of complex and emotionally challenging themes to create a courageous, moving, and informative book….Cassedy is unwilling to accept easy answers, to make easy condemnations.”

Book Review: We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust
Compelling Stories: Jewish Lives Lived
“engaging, informative, thought-provoking.”

Two New Books, review by author Antanas Sileika
“What’s so remarkable about Cassedy is that she is something of a detective, interviewing everyone she can about what happened to the Jews and to the Lithuanians as well. She meets an old man in Rokiskis, who feels a need to unburden himself by describing the murder of Jews, which he witnessed decades before, and she speaks to surviving Jews as well.”
