4.0 out of 5 stars A truth worth inheriting, 17 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Inherit the Truth 1939-1945: The Documented Experiences of a Survivor of Auschwitz and Belsen (Paperback)
This short book about life in first Auschwitz, and then Belsen for a teenage Jew is both moving and engrossing. The author gives a first hand account of the horrors of the holocaust experienced by herself and her sister.
The writing is simple and undramatised. She simply wants to tell it as it was. She readily admits there are many events she has simply blocked out for fear that remembering might be too much for her. The story is told without horrific descriptions of the expeience. It is an honest and heartbreaking account.
The tale is told partlly through letters Anita wrote to her sister who had been lucky enough to be deported to England before war broke out. These letters reflect the desperate situation facing all Jews in the early 1940's who were vainly trying to escape the clutches of the concentration camps.
This book is certainly an inspirational read. It is a tale of both tragedy and the strength of the human spirit to survive.
