Where the Angels Lived: Gramercy Books

McMullan’s heartrending, and haunting, heartrending, and hopeful journey to remember and honor her family’s legacy. In traveling to Pecs, Hungary and through her relentless research, McMullan is united with her unknown past, discovering enough details to see the essence of her long-lost relative, Richard Engel de Janosi, who died in 1944 at Mauthausen Concentration Camp. In remembering Richard, and her extended Engel de Janosi family, McMullan reminds us how connected we all are to our past. McMullan perceptively includes this quote by Sigmund Freud in her insightful story: ‘Memories lie buried yet remain forceful enough to shape our lives.’
