ALL BUT MY LIFE

ALL BUT MY LIFE

By Gerda Weissmann Klein. A moving autobiographical account of a woman who lost all of her family and friends to Nazi concentration camps, yet retained an unyielding faith in humanity that allowed her to begin a new life after the nightmare had ended. The author, who was conscripted as a slave laborer for three years, vividly recounts the German invasion and occupation of her native Poland, the thousand-mile winter march she and 4000 others were forced to suffer, the appalling conditions under which she was made to live and work in German-controlled weaving mills, and her lengthy and trying recuperation from sickness and malnutrition. (The 1995 Academy Award-winning short documentary, One Survivor Remembers, is based on the book and life of Gerda Klein.) Grades 7 and up. Epilog. Illustrated. Hill and Wang. 261 pages. Revised edition. ©1995.
