A moving account of survival under terrible conditions
on 24 October 1998
As a grandad of 63, I thought I knew something about World War Two. Thanks to Anne Frank, I thought I knew quite a lot about the sufferings of the Jews but this amazing story by Mrs Appleman-Jurman has utterly convinced me of how little I know about the ghastly events of the first 11 years of my life. I read the book straight through at a single sitting and cannot find the words to express my admiration for its inspiringly brave author. I have told all my friends and relatives that they must read the book for themselves.I honestly believe it is the most moving account of survival under terrible conditions. As fellow human beings, we must never let anything like the sufferings of Alicia happen again, never, never, never.
