About this Item

Softbound. 8vo. XXV, 276 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Azrieli series of Holocaust survivor memoirs; Series II. "Fred Mannís compelling story is at once a nerve-wracking account of his familyís efforts to stay one step ahead of the Nazi death machinery and the captivating story of a boyís rapid entry into manhood. His account is rooted in rich details of daily life in Leipzig and Berlin under the Third Reich. With the rise of the Nazis, Fred recalls in the most personal of terms the tightening net of persecution that gradually made life in Germany intolerable for its Jews and forced his family to flee. Using the biblical theme of Exodus to give shape to his story, he traces his familyís exile through Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Jamaica and finally to a new home in Canada. A tale of truly epic proportions, at once tragic and hopeful, it is also a story of the profound resilience of youth, of a boy who found himself taking on adult responsibilities while at the same time wrestling with his newfound attraction to girls. Though he is proud of his maverick spirit and his ability to aid his family in a time of desperate need, Fred Mannís story is also a lament for a lost childhood, a lament for having to grow up too fast.
