Book Description

October 26, 2011
Trudie Richman considers herself a lucky Holocaust survivor. She, along with her five siblings and both parents, escaped the horrors of Nazi Europe. Escape from Vienna is a redemptive and ultimately uplifting memoir, beginning with Trudie at just three years of age losing her biological mother. Richman's story takes another dramatic turn when Hitler annexes Austria. A sheltered, naive and terrified 14-year old Richman struggles on her own to reach the secure shores of America. Escape from Vienna's narrative has an innocent quality and is not horrific like other Holocaust memoirs, thought it does have some sad vignettes. The memoir is also appropriate for young readers, who would be inspired with Richman's ability as a teenager to learn English, graduate high school early and earn a scholarship to college. Richman is now an accomplished poet and musician. Two of her folk recordings are on the prestigious Smithsonian Folkways label. Visit her website:

Format:Kindle Edition
I'll admit that I usually don't read or watch anything about the Holocaust because they are usually depressing. A friend of mine told me I should read Escape from Vienna but I was dubious because I don't want to subject myself to sadness. I've already read lots of Holocaust literature. But this book is different because, though it does contain harrowing and sometimes sad vignettes, for the most part it is, for the lack of better term, a more light-hearted Holocaust memoir.

The book should be distributed in many school districts around the world.
