Mother & Me tells the story of Julian Padowicz and his mother during the Holocaust. Once a socialite who had no interest in childrearing, his mother is forced to do whatever was necessary to provide for herself and her son, including making a dramatic escape on foot to Hungary.
Ship in the Harbor continues the story of eight-year-old Padowicz and his mother after they arrive in Hungary and their problems continue.
Loves of Yulian concludes the three-part memoir. After fleeing Hungary, Padowicz and his resourceful but self-involved mother immigrate to Brazil to await their passage to the United States.
Padowicz will also be signing Escaping the Holocaust, a book for young readers based on Mother & Me.
