Landscapes of Memory: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered


Bloomsbury 224pp £12.99 order from our bookshop

As a child Ruth Kluger knew that danger and death were all around, but the grown-ups weren’t telling her. In Birkenau in 1944, and after it in 1945, she and her mother chose several times not to wait and hope, but to take a risk and go. These two experiences – risk-taking and truth-hiding – shaped her, and shaped this book.
