"From its opening pages, in which she recounts her own premature birth, triggered by terrifying rumors of an incipient pogrom, Bernstein' s tale is clearly not a typical memoir of the Holocaust. She was born into a large family in rural Romania?and grew up feisty and willing to fight back physically against anti-Semitism from other schoolchildren. She defied her father' s orders to turn down a scholarship that took her to Bucharest, and got herself expelled from that school when she responded to a priest/teacher' s vicious diatribe against the Jews by hurling a bottle of ink at him?After a series of incidents that ranged from dramatic escapes to a year in a forced labor detachment, Sara ended up in Ravensbruck, a women' s concentration camp, Aand? managed to survive?she tells this story with style and power." --Kirkus Reviews

Review: The Seamstress

Nutzerbericht  - Christine Thill - Goodreads

I enjoy all sorts of books from this era and this one does not disappoint. A straightforward story from a woman whose strength was "matter of fact" survival. Surviving such atrocity is unimaginable. It was a beautifully narrated, well written account of someone I wish I could have met. Vollständige Rezension lesen
