The Watchmaker's Daughter tells the story of a child
of two refugees: a watchmaker who saved lives within Dachau
prison, and his wife, a gifted concert pianist about to make
her debut when the Nazis seized power. In this memoir, Sonia
Taitz is born into a world in which the Holocaust is
discussed constantly by her insular concentration
camp-surviving parents. This legacy, combined with Sonia's
passion and intelligence, leads the author to forge an
adventurous life in which she seeks to heal both her parents
and herself through travel, achievement, and a daring love
affair. Ironically, it is her marriage to a non-Jew that
brings her parents the peace and fulfillment they would
never have imagined possible. Sonia manages to combine her
own independence with a tender dutifulness, honoring her
parents' legacy while forging a new family of her own.
