Book Review ~ A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy

Thomas Buergenthal, now a Judge in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, tells his astonishing experiences as a young boy in his memoir A LUCKY CHILD. He arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and a labor camp. Separated first from his mother and then his father, Buergenthal managed by his wits and some remarkable strokes of luck to survive on his own. Almost two years after his liberation, Buergenthal was miraculously reunited with his mother and in 1951 arrived in the U.S. to start a new life.

Now dedicated to helping those subjected to tyranny throughout the world, Buergenthal writes his story with a simple clarity that highlights the stark details of unimaginable hardship. A LUCKY CHILD is a book that demands to be read by all.

What an amazing book of a child survivor.  This is a must read story.  It really should be recommended to students learning about the Holocaust.  To read how a child saw the war is very interesting.  The book itself is gorgeous.  With rough edge pages and pictures scattered throughout the story.  Highly recommended book!
