Guesthouse for Ganesha by Judith Teitelman
In 1923, 17-year-old Esther Grünspan arrives in Köln “with a hardened heart as her sole luggage.” Thus begins a 22-year journey, woven against the backdrops of the European Holocaust and the Hindu Kali Yuga (the “Age of Darkness” when human civilization degenerates spiritually), in search of a place of sanctuary.
Throughout her travails, Esther relies on her masterful tailoring skills to help mask her Jewish heritage, navigate war-torn Europe and emigrate to India. Weaving Eastern beliefs and perspectives with Western realities and pragmatism, “Guesthouse for Ganesha” is a tale of love, loss, and spirit reclaimed.
