This is a story with an interesting perspective. One thing I always take away from Holocaust memoirs is that something like this should never happen again. It's an atrocity that it happened once; lets never let it happen twice.
Marceline's story is poignant and touching. It's told from a different perspective, I found. We hear of families that are sent to the camps but what happens when, during the arrests, only part of the family goes to the camps and only one of them returns? How does that influence the person returning? And what about the other family members? How are their lives changed?
Another hard fact was that lives were irreplaceably changed. There is no coming back after the camps. One's outlook, perspective, thoughts and ideas are never the same. Life is changed forever.
A beautifully told account of one woman's struggle to find her way again.
Thank you, Marceline, for telling your story.
"The first things we lost were the feelings of love and sensitivity. You freeze inside so you don't die." -Page 13
Marceline Loridan-Ivens heartbreakingly recounts her teenage years spent in a Holocaust concentration camp. And how the loss of her father devastated her family, her ability to connect, and her sense of country.
This is an emotionally affecting book that will break your heart while you admire the strength and depth of the author. A cautionary tale for the present time and a tribute to those who survived.
