My Reconstructed Life
By Eugen Schoenfeld

About the Book
In My Reconstructed Life Eugen Schoenfeld tells the improbable story of his life. Born in a small shtetl in the Carpathian Mountains, Schoenfeld became a professor of Sociology at Georgia State University. The fact that a small boy from this background would become a professor is noteworthy in and of itself. What makes it remarkable, however, is that between one axis of his life—his youth in a small Jewish community in Hungary’s mountains—and the other—his distinguished career at a state university—he endured and survived the Holocaust. Though each life is uniquely valuable, the course of Schoenfeld’s life reminds us of the tremendous intellectual and professional losses perpetrated by the Holocaust.

From Foreword by Deborah E. Lipstadt, Ph.D., Emory University, Atlanta, GA.

About the Author
Eugen Schoenfeld was born in 1925 in the Carpathian town of Munkacs in what is now Ukraine. He was raised and educated in the deeply rooted traditions of the Jewish faith amid a large and active Jewish community. However, Hitler’s Final Solution would irrevocably change his close-knit family. Having survived the ghetto and internment in Germany’s infamous camps, the young man immigrated to the United States to begin to rebuild his life and complete his formal education with a Ph.D. in Sociology from Southern Illinois University. After a long and successful academic career culminating in the Chairmanship of the Department of Sociology at Georgia State University, where he developed the department’s Ph.D. program, Schoenfeld now resides in Atlanta with his wife, Jean.
