Lala's Story: A Memoir of the Holocaust (Jewish Lives)

Lala's Story: A Memoir of the Holocaust (Jewish Lives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of 1998 Carl Sandburg Award

Born into a middle-class Jewish family in 1932, Lala Weintraub grew up in Lvov, Poland. When the Nazis came, Lala--who had blond hair and blue eyes--survived by convincing them she was a Christian. This book tells her remarkable story.

Fiercely determined and greatly aided by her Aryan looks, she managed to convince everyone-German soldiers, interrogators, fellow Poles-that she was a Polish gentile. Within a year after the Germans captured Lvov, many of Lala's family members were missing and presumed dead. Lala's Story follows her as she moves from town to town, driven by her fear of being discovered. More than a story of survival, this is the story of a young girl's resolute struggle to defy, resist, and ultimately defeat the evil forces pursuing her.
