Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In 1939, Samelson, now a professor at Trinity University (Tex.), was an 11-year old violin prodigy living in Poland. A year later, he had a secret bar mitzvah in a Nazi labor camp. His mother and sister had been sent to their deaths; he and his brother escaped and became members of a group of partisans. Captured, they were returned to a camp and later liberated to join a father subsumed by the hatred that had helped him to survive, and a postwar world in which many Nazis went unpunished. Eventually Samelson came to the realization that some of his enemies had been caught, as he and his family were caught, in the machinery of evil. "One condemned understands another," he writes in this heartfelt memoir that is affecting for its intensity and as a survivor's search for an affirmative post-Holocaust life.

From Library Journal

This fictionalized memoir of a young Jewish boy's harrowing experiences surviving the Holocaust in Poland is a testament to the individual's will to survive. Vilek Samelson sees his family disappear one by one. His grandfather, whose faith in God has been of great support to the boy, is shot. His grandmother is burned in the synagogue. His mother and sister are transported to Treblinka, while he and his brother survive forced labor, life with the partisans, and finally a series of concentration camps. Vilek's story is one that must continually be retold. However, the author, himself a survivor of Buchenwald, would have been better served by telling the story of his life as fact , since fictionalizing it trivializes it, and the format lacks the tension of a genuine novel. Purchase where appropriate.
