Is it still legal to sell this as a "true story"? I wouldn't mind my money back!
Anyone with an ounce of sense could see that it was all fake - and now the author has admitted it's all made up, even her name, she's not even Jewish - just check any news site.
None of it happened, and she's been laughing all the way to the bank with her millions, whilst the gullible kept on buying, and weeping over "the triumph of the human spirit" etc., etc.
Certainly, none of this made sense as the true story of a 6 year old.
I have given it the lowest rating I can, not because it is terribly written, but I am angry about the shameful abuse and manipulation the author has perpetrated, and also the cheapening and devaluing of the real and terrible experiences of so many. As I continued to read this book, my sense that it was a fake continued to grow - but I am so unwilling to believe that anyone could deliberately set out to deceive like this, that I found myself castigating myself for my own disbelief. It was only whilst I was about to post my review, which would have been a low rated one, but saying 'somehow, I'm unable to believe this is real, or is completely real, that there may be a kernal of truth, but the author is consciously or unconsciouly fabricating'. I looked up a couple of other very low reviews and found myself directed to the fact there had been a recent expose of Defonseca.
Shame on you Mischa Defonseca - I don't particularly care that you have set out to hoodwink the public in order to garner financial rewards, though that is of course pretty shabby - I DO care that you have given credence to all those who seek to say the whole holocaust experience is 'made-up', and i do care that you have so cynically exploited the very real and tragic suffering experienced by many millions, and the survivors and descendents of those survivors
I am just glad I borrowed this book from the library - I feel tainted enough that i have lined your pockets by public lendings, had I bought your book I would have torn it up and used it for cat litter. Shameful behaviour, you have a heart of money, Defonseca
