Gerda Weissman Klein at Mandel JCC's Festival of Books and Authors
Book Title:  All But My Life

Free and Open to the Public (RESERVATIONS REQUIRED)

A classic of Holocaust literature, Gerda Weissmann Klein's celebrated memoir All But My Life tells the moving story of the years the author spent as a slave laborer of the Nazis and her miraculous liberation.  All But My Life stands as the ultimate lesson in humanity, hope and friendship and was described as an "unforgettable reading experience" by the Library Journal.

Gerda's serene and idyllic childhood was shattered when Nazis marched into Poland on September 3, 1939.  Although the Weissmanns were permitted to live for a while in the basement of their home, they were eventually separated and sent to German labor camps.  Over the next few years Gerda experienced the labor camps.  Over the next few years Gerda experienced the slow, inexorable stripping away of "all but her life."  By the end of the war she had lost her parents, brother, home, possessions, and community; even the dear friends she made in the labor camps, with whom she had shared so many hardships, were dead.  Yet Gerda's beautifully-written story conveys great strength of spirit and faith in humanity.
