Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"From its opening pages, in which she recounts her own premature birth, triggered by terrifying rumors of an incipient pogrom, Bernstein' s tale is clearly not a typical memoir of the Holocaust. She was born into a large family in rural Romania?and grew up feisty and willing to fight back physically against anti-Semitism from other schoolchildren. She defied her father' s orders to turn down a scholarship that took her to Bucharest, and got herself expelled from that school when she responded to a priest/teacher' s vicious diatribe against the Jews by hurling a bottle of ink at him?After a series of incidents that ranged from dramatic escapes to a year in a forced labor detachment, Sara ended up in Ravensbruck, a women' s concentration camp, Aand? managed to survive?she tells this story with style and power." --Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Written by a strong woman with an unusual story to tell, this is "one of the best of the recent wave of Holocaust memoirs" ("Kirkus"). ALA choice.

Robert Schindler, March 28, 2011 (view all comments by Robert Schindler)
If this book doesn't bring you to tears, you have no heart. The writer, Louisa Loots Thornton, does a magnificent job of bringing Seren Tuvel's story to life - and death. I could not put this down. A great addition to the memoirs of the Holocaust.
