YA In an afterword to I Didn't Say Goodbye, Bruno Bettelheim discusses the psychological horrors of the deep silences and denials, the overpowering grief, and the tormenting loss that torture the children of the Holocaust, the survivors. He is commenting on the first-person accounts given to a French psychiatrist, herself a survivor, by those who were hidden away, spirited away, and saved as their families were taken to the death camps. Because there was never any time for goodbyes, the title is an apt one, prefiguring the constant need to survive by denying their Jewish heritage, their feelings of loss, even their need to mourn. This opportunity to tell their stories helps these survivors to mourn at last as they share the very personal experiences of hiding, subterfuge, and denial. Finally they can confront their grief, the finality of their loss, and name it in all its horror. This is a powerful addition to Holocaust literature. Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, Md.
