A Detail of History
The Harrowing True Story of A Boy Who Survived the Nazi HolocaustBook - 2015
How do you survive when you’re 11 years old and all your family have been taken from you and killed? How do you continue to live, when everything around you is designed to ensure certain death? Arek Hersh tells his story simply and honestly, a moving account of a little boy who made his own luck and survived. He takes us into the tragic world imposed on him that robbed him of his childhood. The depth of the tragedy, strength of courage and power of survival will move you and inspire you. Contrary to assertions that the Holocaust years were a mere 'detail of history', Arek Hersh gives us a glimpse into the greatest catastrophe that man has ever inflicted on his fellow man.
