Description of this Book

In this new edition of his bestselling memoir, A Lucky Child, Thomas Buergenthal tells of his astonishing experiences as a young boy during the Holocaust. Buergenthal arrived at Auschwitz at age 10 after surviving two ghettos and two labor camps. Separated first from his mother and then his father, he 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 an international human rights expert 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. Since the initial publication of this book, new documents have been made available by the International Tracing Service, allowing Buergenthal to finally learn the details of his mother's search for him and the truth about his father. Now with a new afterword by the author sharing these revelations, A Lucky Child is a classic that demands to be read by all.
