BISAC: Biography & Autobiography / Personal Memoirs 

The story of one man’s journey through three generations and five continents to find—and heal—a past he didn’t know existed.

imageIn 1997, Martin Beck Matuštík made a dramatic discovery at the age of forty: he was the child of a Holocaust survivor. His mother’s shocking secret came from the most unlikely of places—shoeboxes full of her literary and personal archives. These dramatic revelations changed his life forever and set him on a path to discover his true identity. His research unveiled his mother’s remarkable life—and the truth behind her painful decision to reject her Jewish heritage and keep it hidden from her family.  

Matuštík’s Out of Silence is an intensely personal Czech-Slovak-American Jewish journey into the past to understand the present and find hope for the future. Dealing with self-transformation, loss, memory, recovery, and the unsettling reality of living with multiple identities, Matuštík’s exhaustive research and selfless prose offer other children of survivors—and the world at large—a remarkable look inside one man’s endeavor to repair the shattered map of his identity.
