I really liked this book although it was difficult to read in parts. Fragments is an excellent title because the author is writing it from the view point of a young child and is remembering as best he can his experiences at the concentration camp where he lived and he tells how this affected his perspective on things afterwards. I have read several books written by Holocaust survivors and this one especially stood out to me.
I realize that has been some controversary as to whether this story is true or not either way it is a very interesting read and taking into consideration all the other books that have been written by survivors of events that DID take place this story is highly believable and interesting.
an extrodinary memoir of a young child who spent his childhood in the
nazi death camps.
There is now ample evidence that the story told in this book is false
Dramatic book. It will really open your eyes like no other book can. The things these children went through will break your heart. Anyone interested in Nazi Camps must read this.
Read it for a class in college. I remember the book being very moving, but that was a few years ago!
Fragments is the perfect name for this one. The horrible memories come back to this man in fragments or flashbacks from a traumatic childhood. This book is a hard one to put down.You feel like at times you are there with him and you wish you could rescue him. This account is heart gripping and startlingly.It is difficult to understand how this little boy not only survived but was able to psychologically work through the the pain to write this incredible book! Anyone that has had a traumatic experience and had flashbacks will understand this one and appreciate it!
