Book Review : Survivors; true stories of children of the Holocaust by Allan Zullo and Mara Bovsun
This heart-rending book constitutes of short stories that tell the tales of nine young boys and girls that had to live the tragic event of genocide as it overtook Europe. In a time of unimaginable horror, somehow these children found a way to make it alive even if their families didn’t. Their true-life accounts are a powerful exemplification of courage. It really makes you think about how horrifying it would be if you were in their position.
We’ve all heard and read of the holocaust to a certain extent but there’s nothing more eye-opening than reading about the experiences of those who actually went through it. Often we hear of facts figures or in other words, numbers of millions of people who lost their lives. It is books like these that add faces to these numbers and make you truly comprehend how grave these numbers really are.
