    I think it is my duty, not so much as a German born to non Nazis in 1939 but as a human being, to keep reading Holocaust memoirs I cannot read too many in a row, but I read several every year.Yes, Thomas Buergenthal was A Lucky Child otherwise, he would not have lived to write this memoir But as Ruth Klueger points out in her philosophical Holocaust memoir Still Alive A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered , the luck of the Holocaust survivors does not diminish the dimension of the crime, and the survivors cannot be used as credits to be subtracted from the great debit Thomas Buergenthal s story lets you shudder at how much repeated miraculous luck was necessary for his survival Religious people will probably replace the term luck with other terms Buergenthal, however, is not religious and attributes his survival to luck.All Holocaust memoirs i.e., those that stick to the truth and don t mix facts with fiction are worthwhile reading, but one cannot possibly read them all So I try to find those memoirs that are well written and provide some insights than othe...

    Leider, leider muss ich sagen, dass mich das Buch eher entt uscht hat Es ist super oberfl chlich und rei t nur alle Geschehnisse an und beschreibt sie auch wenn dann erschreckend relativierend Wahrscheinlich ein Einsteigerbuch in die Thematik, wenn einem die Wahrheit zu schlimm erscheint.

    Published in 2015, former justice to the ICC, Thomas Buergenthal discusses his survival during the Holocaust So important to have survivors record their story so that future generations may never forget.

    Having just undergone eye muscle surgery, I chose to read this as an audiobook borrowed from my local library I confess that I was medicated and perhaps at times drifted in and out but it was a fascinating book telling the story as he remembers it of Thomas Buergenthal s life as a boy growing up during the war living in ghetto s , Auschwitz and Sachsenhausen That he managed to survive all do these experiences he puts down to luck knowing that sounds odd, and to the length of time he spent drifting into hell which prepared him to survive He spoke Polish and German fluently and a little English which proved helpful at many times even allowing him to pass as a Polish child for some months He literally escaped death after being shot as part of a mass execution managing to get up from where he was shot and escape into a neighbouring camp where he quickly found his father The story if full of close calls.The audio book has both the preview and prologue parts read by the author and while his voice was a little flat at times, I appreciated hearing him speak his own thoughts The reader of the bulk of the book did an excellent job too In the closing section read by the author we learned of his after the war He ult...

    One of the best Holocaust accounts I have read A wonderful quote It is important not to hold the descendants of the perpetrators responsible for what was done to us, lest the cycle of hate and violence never end If this were applied to race relations in America, it wo...

    I m always interested in the stories about how people survived the hardships of WWII particularly the Holocust This book was written by a boy who survived many events in his childhood including being in no man s land which was a place between countries to a Jewish ghetto in Poland, to death camps and work camps He was about 10 when he went on the Auschwitz Death March He attributes his success to many things including luck, his Aryan appearance, his ability to speak multiple languages, and his child s view of not thinking about the future He doesn t remember alot of details, but some are very specific Some of his story is fun like being adopted for awhile by the Polish Army who took him with them to invade Berlin Most however are similar to other peoples stories He was the youngest child to survive any of the camps he was in Mostly children were exterminated Some details were filled in later when he was contacted by others One man he met Odd Nansen kept him entertained while in the hospital ward, later he realized Nansen also probably kept him alive by paying orderlies with tobacco Odd Nansen published his diaries and Tommy gained some notariaty in Sweden ...

    A touching memoir of a young child s survival of the Holocaust This book was not as graphic as many Holocaust books I have read and the thought provoking nature of the work makes it a must read I particularly recommend the epilogue It is a very thought provoking look into international human rights law As much as th UN is corrupt, I have wondered about international court bodies particularly when state sovereignty is disregarded for international rule I think the author provides a very compelling argument for international courts and such organizations I would love to have this discussion in a group of people who are well versed in the pros and cons of international law The author puts into words a taught I have had many times while reading of the atrocities of the Holocaust it frightens me terribly that the individuals committing these acts are for the most part not sadists, but ordinary people who go home in the evenings to their families, washing their hands before sitting down to dinner, as if what they had been doing was just a job like any other If we humans can so easily wash the blood of our fellow hum...

    Holocaust memoirs are so important and become over time They are the eye witness reports of atrocities that would otherwise have been forgotten and swept under the rug The memoirs show us what truly happened and how people s lives were affected, both during and after Thomas Buergenthal tells his story from a distance of 55 years This gives his memories a somewhat unemotional telling but one that is deep and touching One can see the pain he witnessed and experienced through that filter of time From this atrocity of the Holocaust, Thomas emerged as a wonderful human being who understands that the cycle of horror and pain has to be stopped He s doing his part to stop that cycle of hatred retaliation and turning it to understanding and acceptance The task ahead for mankind is to strengthen these tools international law , not to despair, and to never believe that mankind is incapable of creating a world in which our grandchildren and...

    This is another book that I can t possibly rate It s not that I am opposed to rating all memoirs It s I am opposed to it when it is someone who has been through a situation I can t begin to ever understand ex other war memoirs, kidnappings etc Maybe it means I m a softie All I know is to strip someone s experience, an experience that was a major if not the major event in their life, down to st...

    Before I opened this book I looked at the cover a long time, it shows a young and happy family, a young cherub faced boy and I thought to myself, they do not look Jewishbut then I thought how in the late 40s and 50s in this country people had very perceptive radar as to what anyone s national background was As a child, I went no where that I wasn t immediately recognized as coming from Irish stock, true I had freckles which seemed to never deface any British face I knewand looking back at photos I only saw and American child Yet even into my 20s and 30s the first thing most people commented on was my Irishness, In spite of the fact my family had been here for generations, and with that was the assumption that I was a Papist Today only a few would have that special cultural based face recognition Growing up my family knew many Jewish people primarily because my father in his youth during the Depression had been a Shabbat goy, and had come to know many Jewish families, most of whom he admired Post war due to the low pay of an U.S Officer, we lived in a Jewish neighborhood in Far Rockaway, filled with recent emigres and Jews who had lived here for generations The only people I recognized as Jews were the were the ultra orthodox because of their dress I obviously did not have the capacity for special facial recognition.In every story about Holocaust survivors is the standard reality that people turned in others for appearing Jewish, e...
