Publisher's Summary

How do we come to be who we are spiritually? How does our political and social environment influence our development of self?

A young American author immerses herself in modern Jewish Hungary. The 21 stories she shares will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you want to be your own best self. Somehow I Am Different provides an opportunity to connect in a world that otherwise begs us to stand alone. This book serves as a reminder that in spite of the factors working against us, we have the power to make a difference. In their own words, Hungarian participants will tell you, "Instead of emphasizing our victimhood, we should really tell another story" (Tamás Büchler) and "Maybe I am not perfect, but I am me. At least I am me." (Devora Hurwitz).
