A Moving Story 7 Mar. 2013
By Dr. Barry R. Leventhal, Distinguished Senior Professor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of the most moving stories to come out of the Holocaust. Friiedlander takes us back to the years leading up to World War II, from the period of his childhood to his contribution to the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. The reader travels with him as he struggles with the memories of his past to his rediscovery of who he is as a Jewish young man. The reader will be drawn into his or her own past to discover how one's memory of the past forges one's present reality.

An unforgettable journey 25 Oct. 2012
By Serena D. Gould - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr Friedlander has created a work that stands above the many ohters of published Holocaust memoirs in its unforgettable poignancy and as a story of courage. His achievement is couched in the most beautiful language, and is above all the ultimate revenge- a story of recovery and meaningfulness out of unbearable trauma. I salute a great writer and academic.

Memories Revived 29 May 2013
By Art Shostak - Published on
Format: Paperback
Saul Friedländer's WHEN MEMORY COMES, out for several years now, is a book that will never date itself. Friedländer unfolds, in quasi-chronological order, his coming of age childhood in World War II-ravaged Europe. His recalled memories of childhood and familial losses foreshadow the tribulations--and hard-earned triumphs (survival--and professional success) in the years to come. Friedländer's prose is straightforward so that even the younger students can learn from it.

April 2008 - I read this book when it was first published. A very beautifully written and translated memoire of a Jewish boy raised as a Catholic in order to save him from the Nazi death camps.
