In 2009 the Jewish Historical Society published Remembering the Old Neighborhood, a collection of stories about growing up in Hartford’s North End. This new anthology also includes stories set in Hartford’s North End as well as in downtown, the South End, and the West End. The 135 contributors to this collection fondly recall immigrant relatives, hard-working parents, and life during the Depression and World War II. There are unforgettable stories of family businesses, public school and yeshiva, the joys and challenges of childhood and young adulthood, and the devastation of natural disasters. The universal appeal of these stories is that they conjure up the strong and everlasting bonds of friendship, family, and community.
