Why I Wrote This Book
Carrying My Father’s Torch: From Holocaust to Transformation is the book I was born to write. Writing has nourished me for as long as I remember. It taught me to pay attention to my thoughts and that a simple thing like pen to paper could provide immense joy. Researching and writing this book has deepened my understanding about what it means to be the hero of your own story and what it takes to bring about desired change at any age and stage.
Although I never thought of it as growing up with trauma, as a child of a Holocaust survivor and a mother who felt abandoned by her own mother, I carried their silence and shame, along with their love and devotion. I wrote the book to inspire others to take a look at how transgenerational family legacy, consciously or unconsciously, continues to limit life’s options…until the cycle is broken. I wrote the book to show that expressing what we know, and coming clean about what we don’t yet know, are keys to breaking the cycle for us and successive generations. I wrote the book to give readers a roadmap to look deeper into family patterns that keep them from living an authentic and more fulfilling life, and repurpose the pain of family legacy in a way that allows for a more authentic, confident and sovereign version to emerge.
Gaspar is a gifted writer with something very important to say.
