No Childhood” by Edith Rogers

Bob Book Reviews Leave a Comment

This is a very inter­est­ing book writ­ten by a Holo­caust sur­vivor about her expe­ri­ences as a young girl dur­ing the Nazi reign in Ger­many. The sto­ries are very basic — could have been trans­lat­ed from Ger­man to Eng­lish — with some poet­ry. What’s most unique is the per­spec­tive from a young girl whose moth­er and broth­er were tak­en away and lat­er killed at Auschwitz, essen­tial­ly aban­doned by the author’s father in order to save the rest of the fam­i­ly from sure death. It’s a quick read but one you might want to read twice so as not to miss much. (Sent by Mar­i­lyn Leach) RECOMMENDED
