Publisher Comments:

Thomas Buergenthal, now a Judge in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, tells his astonishing experiences as a young boy in his memoir A LUCKY CHILD. He arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and a labor camp. Separated first from his mother and then his father, Buergenthal managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survive on his own. Almost two years after his liberation, Buergenthal was miraculously reunited with his mother and in 1951 arrived in the U.S. to start a new life.

Now dedicated to helping those subjected to tyranny throughout the world, Buergenthal writes his story with a simple clarity that highlights the stark details of unimaginable hardship. A LUCKY CHILD is a book that demands to be read by all.

GFaughn, September 1, 2011 (view all comments by GFaughn)
Our book club read this and the consensus was that it is an excellent book. The author actually attended college with one of our members, who brought her college yearbook to the meeting so that we could see his photo. We were amazed at the resourcefulness that the author showed as a very young boy, as well as later when he came to the U.S. with very little formal education or knowledge of the English language.
