5.0 out of 5 stars A Remarkable Story by a Remarkable Person, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Like Birds In Black and White (Kindle Edition)
This must be one of the finest personal accounts of survival during the vicious period of WW2 known by the general term "Holocaust". I rank it alongside "Parallel Lines" by Peter Lantos, another moving memoir written by someone caught up in tragedy when a small child.
The language is simple and the narrative completely honest with vivid details of a life suddenly shattered by the mass murder of almost an entire community. Maria's life in hiding is painful to read, almost incomprehensible to me, a near contemporary born far away on the Isle of Man.
The strength of her faith, the dogged determination to fulfil her vow and her on going search for love shine out in the bitter darkness surrounding this brave child.
I strongly recommend it, both as further evidence of "Man's inhumanity to Man" and also as an outstanding contribution to the body of literature on The Holocaust.
