In 1938, fearing for their lives amid rising Jewish persecution, Karl and Rosi Adler fled Nazi Germany for then-unoccupied Europe. In order to pay for their short-term visas, they sold one of their prized possessions - a 1904 painting by Pablo Picasso called Woman Ironing. That painting eventually made its way into the collection of the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Now, the heirs of the Adlers want the painting back.

"Voices of the Lost Children of Greece" is a powerful and deeply moving collection of essays that breaks a long silence and gives voice to the voiceless. Thousands of babies and children were sent from Greece to the US, leaving them with the double dislocation of being adopted and losing their birth culture. A powerful book by the "proud Greek, adoptee, adoptee activist" as she describes herself, Mary Cardaras.
