A Story about the Struggle to Survive
A Holocaust Survivor Story
"Becoming Alice, A
Memoir" is a holocaust survivor story initially experienced by a six-year-old
Viennese girl. Little Ilse must overcome horrific hatred, life threatening
danger, and a harrowing escape before she can embark on her life's path.
Although written in the tradition of "The Diary of Anne Frank", "Becoming Alice"
differs from that classic book in that it is a holocaust survivor story. For
while it tells us about one Jewish girl's journey from darkness to light, the
lessons it offers apply to all of us. This holocaust survivor story will inspire
readers of any age and those that come from all walks of life.
Becoming Alice, A
Holocaust Survivor Story
Six-year-old Ilse watches Nazi
troops march down her street in Vienna, not knowing the tyranny of the holocaust
will soon follow. With innocence and bewilderment she sees prejudice turn into
life-threatening events for her Jewish family. Ilse survives a harrowing escape,
an odyssey that takes her half way around the world to Portland, Oregon, and a
struggle as a refugee to fit into the American landscape. Primarily a holocaust
survivor story, "Becoming Alice" also showcases one girl's fight to heal from
the challenges of a troubled family's problems.
