Review: ALL BUT MY LIFE by Gerda Weissman Klein

Christina from Jackets & Covers recently reviewed Gerda Weissman Klein’s Holocaust memoir, All But My Life.  Here’s an excerpt:

…there is something you can only get by reading the memoir of a survivor. The “I” makes it personal; the “I” makes facts visible realities.

Even on the written side, All But My Life is one of the most, if not the most, well-written written memoirs I’ve ever read. It’s heart-wrenching, emotional, and personal when other Holocaust memoirs are distant. You relive Klein’s past, and I can understand why in the preface Klein says she is now, finally, emancipated from her burden.

Read the rest of her thoughts here.
