Holocaust Lumber: Second Edition

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $5.23
This Second Edition features five new stories, new cover art, and an Afterword by the author. Growing up on a lumberyard just outside Toronto, Allan knew that he was different from most other kids. But it wasn't the stacks of wood or the hard work of helping out around the yard that defined him – it was his role as the oldest child of two Holocaust survivors. Always and above all else, Allan knew that his parents had suffered through terrible atrocities, and that he couldn't cause them any more pain, under any circumstances. Holocaust Lumber is a collection of 30 short stories that capture the complexities and humanity of his parents. Told with unflinching honesty, these stories capture a world of lumber and love, a setting of sweetness and survival, a nightmare of guilt, and the lighthearted, absurd moments that are part of all families.

    Holocaust Lumber is an authentic experience of Rosenfeld’s inherited holocaust survival. The struggles his parents passed down to him reminded me of my own history, post-slavery. Reading Rosenfeld’s experiences helped me to realize that survival is truly passed down through generations, and the children of survivors feel it intensely. I appreciate the descriptiveness and honesty in his childhood and adult achievements and disappointments. They evoked joyful feelings, anxiety, and grief in me. Rosenfeld's writing is refreshing, natural and relatable. I hope more audiences will enjoy the eye-opening journey Holocaust Lumber gives. I definitely recommend this read. Please keep writing!
