Amidst the Shadows of Trees
Miriam M. Brysk
I was brave, but without Mama I would die alone. She in turn was afraid that I would die of cold and hunger. Her thoughts were of me. “Mirele, are you all right?” she asked. “Let me rub your feet a little.” I remember one specific night,lying with several people in a pit under the branches of a large spruce tree. The branches…
Beautifully told and evoking every detail of a child survivor’s experiences of the Shoah, the horrors she witnessed, the losses she experienced, the hardships and heartbreaks she survived, this story is a rare example of a girl who, disguised as a boy, lived with the partisans in the Lipiczany Forest after escaping from the wholesale slaughter of the Lida ghetto inmates. Her authentic testimony, her total recall of every event, every emotion belie the assumption held by some that the testimony of young children cannot be trusted, because they were too young to remember. We are given insights into Miriam’s relationship with her parents, their loving protection during times of incredible hardship, but also their human frailties and failures in the years of exile. Finally the story also covers the postwar, post-Holocaust years and the amazing strength and ambition with which Miriam created her own career and built a loving family relationship in the New World.
Surely this book deserves a place among the many Holocaust accounts on your library shelf.
The Tattered Prayer Book
The Tattered Prayer Book is meant as a gentle introduction to the Holocaust for children ages 6-10. Ruthie discovers a secret about her father, while looking through a box of mementos from the ‘old country.' As her father tells his surprising story, Ruthie learns a piece of her father's story, a slice of Jewish history and the circumstances under which the family fled Nazi Germany. A burnt prayer book taken in secret from a destroyed synagogue after Kristallnacht offers solace to her father as a young boy, at the most difficult time in his life. Once safely settled in America, he tries to bury the prayer book along with his painful past. Many years later, sharing the story with Ruthie, allows father to heal and daughter to grow.
