The extermination of Jews, political prisoners, homosexuals and other undesirables by the Nazis during the 1940's is very well documented in hundreds of historical books, but without the eye witness testimony of the few who survived this period they become almost hollow.

In Fragments of Memory, Hana Greenfield relives the horrors of the European Jewish population, during what came to be known as the Holocaust, in spellbinding and horrifying detail.

She remembers family, friends and neighbors who were subjected to inhumane treatment, humiliation, hunger and brutality on a daily basis. She recalls horror, fear and sadness, but also brief and all too infrequent moments of hope and happiness, which are often followed by yet more despair.

Each story is well written in small, bite-sized chunks, and each can be read as a stand-alone piece or as part of the whole book, making it easy for the reader to dip in and out of the chapters as they please.

The sheer horror of Hana's time in different camps, including the notorious Auschwitz, and the constant fear in which she was forced to live, is conveyed through these tales in a way that only one who had lived through it could deliver.

About the Author:

Hana Greenfield was born in Kolin, Czechoslovakia, from where she was deported to Terezin, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. This collection of articles was written over a period of years, as the incidents flashed back into her memory. Many have appeared in publications in various languages: Hebrew, Polish, French, Yiddish, English, German and Czech. Her original research paper on the fate of the Bialystok children was first published in England, at the 1988 Oxford University conference Remembering for the Future. The author is a member of the board of the Terezin Ghetto Museum where her program for teaching Czech children tolerance, and educating them about the Holocaust, serves thousands of youth annually and is considered a landmark project. Hana Greenfield lives in Israel with her family. Vaclav Havel is President of Czech Republic.

Review:

A chilling, yet surprisingly uplifting and often intimate memoir. --Simone Bonim, The Jewish Eye

The Diary of Anne Frank is now a part of the reading list. I would recommend Hana Greenfield's Fragments of Memory as a better book for young people because where Anne Frank's narrative stops, Greenfield's takes the reader into the heart of darkness and shows what life was in the death camps through the eyes of a teenager. --Ruth David, Journal of Czech and Slovak History
