As I walked into the building (the Childrens Memorial at Yad Vashem) the tape relayed a girls name, adding: Nine years old, from Berlin. I stood rooted to the spot. All I could hear was my own voice echoing back down the long, long years:
My name is Susi. I am nine years old. I am from Berlin.
I lifted my eyes to the sky of the dome and gazed on the myriad of twinkling lights that made up the memorial.
I had been spared. But some became stars.
But Some Became Stars is a moving memoir by a truly remarkable women. From her life in Germany before the war to her abundant achievements since, Bradfield supplies us with pertinent anecdotes while suffusing us with a strong, and sometimes bitter dose of history.
Through Bradfield, we come to know not only the characters who have made up her world, but we begin to identify with and understand the stories of the million plus children whose lives were taken in the Holocaust.
