In First Person weaves a fascinating, and at times heartrending story, with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader's attention from the beginning. Each Holocaust survivor has a unique and individual story. However, these survivors’ stories didn’t end in 1945. They continue through to the present day. Their testimonies provide us with an understanding of how the events of the Holocaust have shaped their lives and are an ongoing testimony to the strength of the human spirit.
Author Lucy Paz's actual story of survival offers an interesting all encompassing human dramatization that stretches out from the dim days of the Second World War to the autonomous State of Israel. A holding and inspiringly idealistic account based on her own personal experiences, you’ll appreciate each page of this captivating voyage of hope and inspiration. This really is a remarkable story.
The book description says it all; 'Since her baby was born Alice was in a permanent state of euphoria. She could spend hours cuddling her, feeding, doing everything possible just to touch her. But then black clouds gathered on the horizon as war loomed ahead. People began to hoard food, military-aged men disappeared from the streets, and long lines formed at stores. It was Alice’s first war in Israel, and the situation was grave.
Alice was beside herself; the ground felt unsteady under her feet. Was it possible that what had happened then is going to happen again? Alice was born when World War II was raging. Her father joined the army and never returned. When the Nazis started transporting Jews to ghettos and death camps, her mother wanted to save her. So she gave her away.
Alice never knew her parents. They are faceless to her; she can’t see or imagine them. Was this war now happening so that Alice would finally be able to feel like her mother when she gave her child away?'
Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself to find out. But I will say it was well worth the read. It's my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.
This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a mesmerizing journey!
It’s one of those books that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader (albeit at times heartrending). I will say, however, that people who have an interest in Jewish history, and the Holocaust in particular, will find this a fascinating read.
If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Lucy Paz in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. I would even go so far as to say that this biography would benefit from a sympathetic Hollywood treatment. Five stars from me.
The plot and theme of the book is extremely powerful. The description and style of narration is also praiseworthy. Depicting the horrible situations of war conditions so vividly that you can clearly imagine the scenes in your mind. The traumas and horrors of war are portrayed so well that you feel they are happening to you. The characters are also portrayed extremely well and feel real.
Overall, In First Person by Lucy Paz is an emotional tale set in the time of war. Highly recommended for those who love reading emotional and realistic books.
