'The Diario is a page turner-brisk, smart, and suspenseful. Wonderfully translated from Ladino by Prof. Ascher and illuminated by her introduction, this escape narrative is an eye-opener for general readers and a treasure for scholars.' -    Jane Mushabac, author of His Hundred Years, A TaleA memoir, tale of adventure, and letter to family left behind, Alfred Ascher’s diario (diary) recounts his and his brother Albert’s remarkable journey of escape, from their native Smyrna (Izmir), Turkey to New York in 1915. The Diario presents Alfred’s account, set against the chaotic backdrop of World War I, in its original and idiosyncratic Ladino, side-by-side with an elucidating English translation. With her scholarly expertise, Gloria Ascher also provides linguistic and cultural context to better understand Alfred’s work, in its own right and as part of a current resurgence of interest in Ladino. Filled with typical Sephardic humor, openness, and joy of life, The Diario is sure to entertain and inspire all who read it with renewed courage and hope.
