For the family to have lived through all of this and survive as well as succeed in life. I am grateful that Sahbra Anna Markus wrote this book. She has inspired me to make the most out of my life and not settle for second best. Thank you

for a child of three year old one could expect odd nasty memories but a full book of day to day happenings what was said to each other lots of every day happenings in lots of details no one of this age could do this?? I did not enjoy this book, as from the start it seemed impossible to believe this was a real memory odd things yes mostly no, even the cloths she wore most to me seems made up or from other people, children of this family starving and no shoes but buying silver candle holders and giving to others in such hard times???? even the photos provided don't relate to the story who had a camera then? not for me this book

A moving account. 16 Mar. 2014
By Lynn M. Swenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is well worth the read. Told through the eyes of a Jewish child born in the throws of WWII and its aftermath, Sahara's recollections of her early life and experiences and her interpretations of them as seen through her child's eyes and then her later reflections as an adult, are both moving and enlightening. This is a story of human endurance in the face of what many of us would find incomprehensible conditions. It is a story of love, hate, laughter, joy, sorrow, betrayal and forgiveness. A young girl who grows up overcoming great obstacles to become a beautiful and accomplished woman, who never forgets who she is and long road she travelled to get there.

At times confusing although a riviting account 10 May 2014
By alanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is too bad that she jumped from 1936 to 2002 and back into the 40 and so on.( just an example) But other than that a MUST READ.
I am also not quite sure of her account of not knowing what an apple was. She was capable of bathing, feeding and otherwise taking care of her siblings way ahead of her young age, 7-8 years of age age, but coming from as mall town where every garden in Europe had apple trees she had never seen an apple or eaten one????? Ach...She is a remarkable women, endured more than any one should EVER endure but some of her memories are a little off.

some bad dreams are real 29 May 2014
By Elaine M. Silverstrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of painfully few memoirs from a child who survived the Holocaust. Incredibly, her parents escape the Warsaw Ghetto and make their way into Russia, then make their way back to Poland in waning years of the war. Unlike adult or teens who survived, children saw through different eyes. This only one set of those eyes.

Mostly fiction 31 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is simply not possible Ms.Markus remembers so much to be so young. I was skeptical the whole time and while doing some research I ran across another site where her brother calling her Anna said she was born in Gorky,Russia. According to him their parents got out of dodge (Poland)at the 1st sign of trouble. He also said there were no twin brothers, because when the twins were allegedly rounded up,the parents were already in Russia. He basically said Ms.Markus always has had a very vivid imagination and after reading this tale I believe him!

Allow childhood memories to surface 8 May 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I chose a high rating because of the horrors this child witnessed a and her mother beat her when she tried to talk about it. The trauma of survival .rape.caring .for younger siblings.constant
hunger and thirst as well as fear.lice.&a
cold uncaring mother.Who only used this preschool.child to help her to care for her siblings and not to speak to or. not to trust anyone for the sake of saving
the family . Though mother.s intentions were noble .it was causing the little girl to suffer even worse after the war ended and the mother beat her if she talked about what happened to her.even to her brothers. She beat her so badly that she almost died. But the child knew nothing else to talk about since she was only age 3 to I'd while trying to grow up. A very profound page Turner.a true story.
