GERDA WEISSMANN KLEIN ALL BUT MY LIFE PDF

This day, she says, was the beginning of a tragedy that lasted six years. She is living in Bielitz, Poland, the town of her birth, and she reacts with horror as she watches her neighbors greet the invading Nazis with joy. Once their town is invaded, though, they can no longer keep it a secret from him. Sanctions start being imposed on the Jews, and Jewish men are being abducted by the Nazis. Gerda never sees him again, although she receives letters from him throughout much of the war. The situation becomes more and more dire for the Jews, as their Aryan neighbors take advantage of the situation as much as they can, buying their possessions for a fraction of their worth and taking over the factories they own.

Shelves: holocaust The artistry and vitality and heart with which Gerda Weissmann Klein brings to life her experiences as a young Polish Jewish girl during the Holocaust is nothing short of extraordinary.

This is as moving and heartbreaking and life affirming as any book Ive ever read. And perhaps its greatest triumph is that it brings back to life and celebrates the humanity of every individual who was close to Gerda, especially her mother and father, her older brother and her closest companion in the camps, a The artistry and vitality and heart with which Gerda Weissmann Klein brings to life her experiences as a young Polish Jewish girl during the Holocaust is nothing short of extraordinary.

And perhaps its greatest triumph is that it brings back to life and celebrates the humanity of every individual who was close to Gerda, especially her mother and father, her older brother and her closest companion in the camps, a girl called Ilse. For all its heartbreak All But My Life is a beautiful resounding testament to the preciousness of life.

In this regard Gerda excels. She writes so well and she organises her material with such deft architectural skill. Our heart goes out to them and stays with them. Nor can I recall any book that has made me cry as much as this did — my little boy was beginning to get a bit concerned and eventually I had to read it while he was asleep.

Just the opposite. This is a memoir but because of the narrative skill of the author it reads like the most gripping of novels. There he stood in his good gray suit, his only one, his shoulders sloping, his hair steel gray in the sun, on his breast the yellow star and black word.

There he stood, already beyond my reach, my father, the center of my life, just labeled JEW. A shrill whistle blew through the peaceful afternoon. Like a puppet a conductor lifted a little red flag. Puffs of smoke rose. The train began to creep away. He did not move. He did not wave.

He did not call farewell. Unseen hands were moving him farther and farther away from us. We watched until the train was out of sight. I never saw my father again.
