9780747568407: Landscapes of Memory: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered

Ruth Kluger is one of the child-survivors of the Holocaust. In 1942, at the age of eleven, she was deported to the Nazi 'family camp' Theresienstadt with her mother. "Landscape Of Memory" is the story of Ruth's life. Of a childhood spent in the Nazi camps and her refusal to forget the past as an adult in America. 'It is not in our power to forgive: memory does that for us,' says Kluger. Not erasing a single detail, not even the inconvenient ones, she writes frankly about the troubled relationship with her mother even through their years of internment, and of her determination not to forgive and absolve the past. It is this memory, pure and harsh, that makes Kluger's memoir so unforgettable.

Review:

'This is a work of shocking revelation ... This book is a fascinating study of the way one child's life was ripped into shreds by the Shoah. It is as important as The Diary of Anne Frank - and equally unforgettable' Independent 'Brilliant ... it is wise, witty, blunt, brutally honest and unsentimental, and as moving as only the naked personal truth, and its bold razor-sharp analysis, can be' Guardian
