My Bridges of Hope
This is one of the best sequels to a Shoah memoir I've read yet. Too many such sequels fall into the trap of simply recounting what happened next and aren't as compelling as the first book because there's no constant suspense and wondering what's going to happen next, which of these people being spoken about survived and who perished. In this sequel, though, there are a lot of interesting ...

Hello, America: A Refugee's Journey from Auschwitz to the New World
worthwhile story to read!
This was an excellent true life story to read. It conveyed the difficulties and joys of learning to adapt and live in America in the 1950's. It puts the reader in touch with the challenges and emotional upheaval that was faced by Jewish post World War II concentration camp survivors. It was an interesting biography too of a woman with aspiration, motivation and dreams to become a teacher. In ...

I Have Lived a Thousand Years
Simon & Schuster Children's
Amazing and Touching Book
I'm surprised I'm the first to comment. I was searching for books on the Holocaust and stumbled upon this one. I went out and bought it, thinking it would be a pretty good read. Not only was I right about that, it turned out to be one of the best books I've ever read. This time period really interests me for some reason, and this book doesn't hold back like some others. I've learned so much more ...

Saving What Remains: A Holocaust Survivor's Journey Home To Reclaim Her Ancestry
I had read the first of a trilogy (I Lived A Thousand Years) written by Livia Bitton-Jackson and was moved by this teenagers faith, love and determination as she lived and survived the Holocaust. I read 'Bridges of Hope' and 'Hello America' which followed her life as she left her homeland and started her life in America. The book, 'Saving what Remains', was written years later when ...
I Have Lived A Thousand Years: Growing Up In The Holocaust
Draws You Right In
Reading about the holocaust is usually a very difficult thing to do. You must take in the horror, but at the same time, take in the amount of courage and hope it took for these very few survivors telling their story to survive. Some stories are not well told, while others are exceptional. Like this one. I Have Lived A Thousand Years is a brilliant story about one of the few living people who went ...
Elli: Coming of Age in the Holocaust (Panther Books)
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd
Sadly, Elli's book goes where Anne Frank's diary did not
Elli's story parallels Anne Frank's in some ways. In the spring of 1944, Elli and her Hungarian family still knew freedom. Elli was thirteen, with the typical crushes on boys we all remember from that age. Then the S.S. came and Elli, with her blonde braids, escaped the gas chamber only to become slave labor for the Third Reich. How Elli ever summoned the courage to write this book is a ...
