When Jewish families left their shtetls in Europe, most went to America, but a large number were also lured to South Africa by gold and diamonds.
Brakenstroom is a collection of short stories about one of these families who settled in the fictional town of Barkenstroom. These are stories that the author heard from his parents and their friends. All are based on truth.
