This is a compelling narrative that is as relevant today as ever. This tragedy was the result of fascism unchecked. As the author suggests, we must be ever vigilant to prevent this in the future.
This is a one day book.
Standing up for what's right submitted by Xris on December 19, 2018, 10:17pm After her experience in surviving the Holocaust, Irene Butter has continued to stand up for what's right. Her story was compelling, but hopefully not to scary for younger readers who could learn a lot from her experiences. I'm proud to have her as a member of our community!
Powerful and heartbreaking submitted by sueij on June 24, 2019, 8:48pm My family heard Irene Butter speak at the Ann Arbor District Library, largely because I thought it was important that my children (13 and 15) hear and meet a Holocaust survivor. She was wonderful, and we each came away with a copy of her book. I’ve just finished it, and it is powerful and heartbreaking. Butter came of age during the Nazi rise and occupation, and she and her family moved several times before being sent to Westerbork and then Bergen-Belsen. She clearly tells of her growing awareness as she moves through childhood to her teenage years, of what happened to her schooling, her friendships, of what family meant through this time, and of the hardship and terror of the camps. The story of how she survived and made it out is powerful yet still heartbreaking. I just re-read the beginning of my review and I said that at the outset, didn’t I? I don’t have better words. We must tell and retell these stories. My thanks to the author for telling hers. We should all read this. We must never forget.
