Searching for Values: A Grandmother, a Grandson, and the Discovery of Goodness (memoir), edited by Audrey Katzman and Mimi Plevin-Foust, Hiram College (Hiram, OH), 2005.
SIDELIGHTS: In Searching for Values: A Grandmother, a Grandson, and the Discovery of Goodness, Stuart Muszynski recounts his battle with chronic fatigue syndrome and his search for meaning in his life. Intertwined with his own story is the story of survival surrounding his grandmother, perhaps the first woman dentist in Poland, and his parents after the Nazis invaded their native Poland. Eventually, the author travels back to Poland to meet with the Roman Catholic families whose efforts helped to rescue his parents and grandmother, who emigrated from Poland to the United States in 1953. A reviewer for the Midwest Book Review Web site called the book "a profoundly moving blend of the lessons of present and past."
