Editorial Reviews

Review

A study of survival and the creation of a new life, this is a book that resonates in the soul of the reader.

(Salem Statesman Journal)

An honest, harrowing, and vivid account of a living nightmare.

(School Library Journal)

Friedman’s biography is unusual for a Holocaust survivor. He and his family settled in Austria after the war, where he became a successful black market entrepreneur. He took special satisfaction at profiting from the misfortune of his former oppressor and became a compulsive philanderer as well. Eventually, Friedman’s father forced him to immigrate to America along with the rest of his family, where he led a quiet family life.

(MultiCultural Review)

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Jay Friedman on June 16, 2006
Format: Paperback
For me this book was truly a Godsend. Because I was never aware of the complete history of my family's experience during the holocaust, I always hungered to know the truth.

When I recieved the book, "I'm no Hero" written by my Uncle, it filled in a part of my heritage that I truly needed to understand. I could not put the book down and to think that my Uncle has now dedicated the last years of his life re living this horrific part of his past to educate students all over the country I can only say,while his book is entitled "I'm no Hero" in my book he is.

This book is an intriguing tale of one man's survival through one of the most atrocious events in history. I feel like I know him as a person very well and having met the man will definitely look at him differently in the future. With graphic detail Mr. Friedman shares his story of coming of age after hiding in a room no bigger than a queen mattress. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
I'm No Hero reminded me of Scheisshaus Luck: irreverant, youthful, and full of hutzpah. Both authors were young men who found the war and their internment to be no reason to stop chasing women, taking advantage of opportunities for self-benefit, or struggling with the adolescent angst of moving from child to man. At times, I didn't like the people they were, but that doesn't make this a less important Holocaust memoir. I think it is important for those of us who come after that victims of the Holocaust were not first and foremost heroes, but people. People who acted with dignity and heroism, people who acted foolishly or with self-interest, people who did the best they could with little to no support or resources. After all, could we truly say that we could have done any differently?
