Holocaust Survivor
Dan Myers, Author, and Editor
Virginia Weinkratz, Narrator

This is not a book for the feint-hearted. The author relates her personal experience as a young 22-year-old Jewish girl growing up in Poland. She communicates the heartache of suddenly being torn from family and community to live a life of fear and uncertainty. Trapped between the German and Soviet forces, the family fees struggling to remain together. Once captured, the men and women are quickly separated. Regina and her mother are torn from her father and male siblings. They are moved from the ghetto to Auschwitz where Regina loses her mother and befriends Elka. Regina describes in graphic detail the physical, mental and emotional atrocities of prison life. Then she is marched to Majdanek, where she remains close to death until “liberated.” Two-thirds of the Jewish population as well as many whom the Nazis viewed as undesirables would be wiped out during World War II.

This book is recommended for young adult and adult audiences who are prepared to read about one of the darkest events in history.

  • Wow, I’d love to read this yet am very wary too. I can tell just from reading this that it’d be uber emotional and disturbing but it’s still fascinating to me. #BloggerClubUK

  • I love the sound of this. I’m sure it’s emotionally harrowing, but I think we need these personal accounts to remind us of the atrocities committed and to make sure nothing even similar in nature ever happens again
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes 🙂

  • Yes, we need to know our history to learn from it.
