    This is a powerful memoir of how strong and resourceful a child can be in the face of grinding, relentless injustice and hardship. Bernice’s story, as told to her compassionate and diligent daughter-in-law Caraol, shows how extra-ordinary and “ordinary” person can become. Bernice retained her humanity and morality in circumstances that could have, and in some cased did, break and demoralize others. I am so heartened that this story has been written and made available to a wider public. It is an important, well written, addition to the documentation of the holocaust. Bernice has given her children and grandchildren her legacy of strength and resilience when Hitler and most of his party are dead and reviled.

    This work will reshape your understanding of antisemitism, a monster lurking since time immemorial. The theme of Jew hatred rears its head perennially in both Biblical and modern history. Bernice's personal narrative, while faithfully bringing to life the individual horror and the hopelessness of an unimaginable time, is also a living story, revealing some elements ignored in other accounts. Most chilling, was the revelation, that life in Allied liberated Poland was as perilous as during the Nazi occupation. As the Russian armies were advancing westward through Poland, a radio broadcast from the Polish Government in Exile from London, exhorted the Polish people to kill the Germans AND the Jews, in order to create a New Poland free of Jews! To fully be able to understand the relentless thread of antisemitism throughout history, one must look to God's words to Samuel, when against his advice, Israel demands a king. (1 Samuel 8:7) And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are... More > saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king." It is natural for those who reject God's right to rule over His creation and hate Him, to also hate the Jewish People. Today we see antisemitism not only in the Holocaust, but surprisingly throughout our secular universities and perilously among Jews who have rejected God in favor of a dystopic vision of 'democracy' and an 'Open Society'.< Less
