That being said, my one-star rating is due to the Q & A format, grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors. Sometimes, Mrs. Rosenberg's answers were 'yes' or 'no' with no further explanation. She seemed to omit a wealth of information which I erroneously thought would be included. No details about the various camps or her treatment there, were mentioned.
On page 9, there is a WARNING: Prepare to laugh, to cry. This book didn't cause me to do either.
There was lack of continuity resulting from the short, choppy, fragmented sentences. I found it similar to reading the essay of a 6th grader. I would hesitate to recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12.
It's difficult to believe that after being in the U.S. for 65+ years, that English is still Mrs. Rosenberg's second language.
Instead of correcting spelling errors, they were left in the text with a (Sp?) after it. What author or editor would let that go to print?
"Ah-hum", "ah-huh" and "a-hah" uttered by the interviewer, were included in the text, which seemed unnecessary, amateurish and ridiculous.
The story seemed to skip quickly from landing in the U.S. after the war to buying property, stocks and a Lexus; but we're never told much about how this transpired.
This Holocaust survivor account would have been better served if Mrs. Rosenberg would have related her story to an author who in turn, would have written her story; with correct spelling, grammar and continuity.
For a total Holocaust experience, I would recommend reading: "I Shall Live", "The Girl in the Green Sweater", "William & Rosalie" or "Bitter Freedom" to name just a few.
So while I really admire Rachel for enduring what she had to, the book really didn't do her story much justice.
I really wanted to finish it but I couldn't.
I think if it had been edited into a story it would have been much more interesting.

I gave this rating 4 stars because it is impossible not to feel the heartbreak of Rachel and the courage as well. A remarkable woman and a remarkable life. Truly worth reading.Published 17 months ago by Ginger Miller
