First stop, Dublin, Ireland, where my father, Theo Garb, grew up amid the threat and, ultimately, the anguish of WWII and the Holocaust.  Emerald Ark, Memories of a Jewish Irish Youth, shares the story of Theo's adventurous early life. Tell me, who ever heard of an Irish Jew? Well, now you have.

Journey with Theo as he relives his childhood and teen years, when life was simple, tenuous, and hopeful for a better tomorrow... Poignant and humorous, Theo's memoir includes a romantic tale of "forbidden" love. review: ***** What a pleasure to read Theo's story. Uplifting, amusing and candid. With so much going on in the world, it was wonderful to escape into Theo's adventures. His love for life, culture, faith and family is tremendous and we have the joy of traveling along with him. I smiled often and appreciate the attention to detail. It also has to be noted that the historical aspect is engaging and enlightening. Can't wait for the movie! (Carol D., NY, USA)
