Fragments : Memories of a Wartime Childhood
Fragments Memories of a Wartime Childhood Author:Binjamin Wilkomirski, Carol Brown Janeway (Translator) Memoir of a small boy who was separated from his family at the age of three or four-years-old after his father was killed during a round-up of Jews in Latvia, and was sent to the Majdanek death camp where he was discovered by Allied soliders in 1945.
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.
