“Although I had read other books by people who survived...”

Written on: 26/04/2009 by rebecca32748 (1 review written)

Although I had read other books by people who survived the Holocaust, I found Coming of Age in the Holocaust to be by far the most difficult.
The difficulty lay in my own limited ability to absorb the horrors that Mrs. Bitton-Jackson recounted in sharp detail. I would read a few pages or paragraphs, sometimes only a few lines. Then I had to lay the book down and work my way through the experience she had just described. Never have I been so immersed in a true, first-person account of… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/03/2009

Elli: Coming of Age in the Holocaust is a beautifully written account of young Elli growing up during the Holocaust at times haunts the reader. One can hardly believe the strength of the survivors. Bitton Jackson shares the horror of Nazi persecution, but allows the reader glimpses of the few small joys to be found while struggling to keep her family together. It is unforgettable… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/05/2004 by mileena hon (1 review written)

I thought Livia Bitton-Jackson's novel was very heart-felt.
It made you think about what really happened during the Nazi reign- the book itself demonstrated that humans could harm others: physically, mentally and emotionally.
Elli and her mother's strong spirituality throughout the whole Holocaust experience has encouraged me to pray more and believe that things happen because they are meant to- that 'miracles' aren't always what we think they are: that they are made by the hands of God.
