Product Description

Product Description

In 1941, Blima Weisstuch was a young Jewish woman going about her life in a city in Poland.

She paid no heed to the stories about a man named Adolf Hitler, his Nazi Party, and their plan for a world that did not include Jews.

But almost overnight her ordinary life was gone, replaced by a nightmare world of terror and death. Millions of people disappeared into the horror of the Holocaust. But Blima's story survives. It is told here by her daughter, Shirley Russak Wachtel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best historical account I've read 28 July 2013
By Spiker
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like all books that cover this particularly horrendous era of history, it makes a fascinating but harrowing read. Coming from a teenage girl makes it even more so. A well written and documented piece of history, and as such deserves to be read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for younger readers. 21 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a harrowing and yet remarkable account from a young teenager who far from enjoying her teens is instead fighting for survival and having to try and cope with her own changes. It is incredible what the human spirit can overcome. There was no self pity just a wonderment and questioning that other people could behave so cruelly towards a race. I think this book is a must read for younger readers .

3.0 out of 5 stars A book to pass the time with 16 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in this book. Everything was rushed and I did not feel any empathy with blima. Her experiences as a Jew were rushed through to the liberation . The story was told in such a way that it was without any emotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping story 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book stands out for me because the characters are portrayed exactly as they were and you can hear the voices of the lost people re telling their story to future generations of readers. A story like this can never have a "happy ending" but it tells us of the strength of the human spirit and is full of hope.

This story although sad was an insight in a different side of what the Jewish nation went through in the last war. The interest and passion of the writer was obvious

Everyone should read stories about the holocaust. They are a constant reminder to us of the terrible sufferings of millions of people who lived during the time of Hitler's reign.
