"Maria Orlowski's TRAINS is a splendidly written & very important book. I can think of very few other memoirs that so vividly describe the complexity of a child's survival under "false identity" during the Holocaust. In particular, the combination of terror & yearning during the war, & of the need to remember & the need to forget afterwards, are exquisitely conveyed. Orlowski also provides striking insights about the significance that Christian imagery came to have for her during the war years, & her experiences will be of interest to all people concerned with the role of faith & belonging under such circumstances. TRAINS is additionally one of the very few memoirs that describes a Jewish child's experiences in Poland during the period immediately following the Holocaust--for this child, years still dominated by the need for multiple identities--& thus provides access to much that we have not heard before. As someone who has been teaching & writing about survivors' experiences for many years, I am very grateful to have this exceptional new memoir to use in my courses."--Dr. Hank Greenspan, University of Michigan.
