Unique - A holocaust teenage survivor.,
This review is from: My Brother's Voice: How a Young Hungarian Boy Survived the Holocaust: A True Story (Kindle Edition)
While there have been many biographies, and auto-biographies of survivors of the holocaust, this is the first one I have read of a teenager surviving. Stephen (Istvan) a Hungarian was incarcerated with his mother and brother in the concentration camp; his older brother survived with him for a while, but then succumbed to illness, through lack of nourishment, and the filthy squalor they were forced to live in. His mother and his wider family also perished in the camp.Stephen was saved just in time when war ended.; but again he was a victim of circumstances, the Communists moved into Hungary and Stephen decided to leave his homeland, and immigrated to Canada in 1948. Ten years later he moved to the U.S He is married with children, grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
This is a moving story, not only of a holocaust survivor, but of a childhood lost forever. Most people are able to say at the end of their lives that their youth was "the happiest time of their life" sadly this is not the case.
