Georgina: Holocaust Memoirs: Holocaust Survivor Stories Fron The Darkest Days of the Holocaust is by Gabriella Kovac and Oliver R. Shead. This is the story of Gabriella’s Mother’s history in Hungary before and during the Holocaust. This memoir is a piece of the fabric of the Holocaust. As survivors are dying off, we are left with only these pieces of memory that the survivors have left us. We are having to rely more and more on their testimony.

Good story

So many people who overcame the brutality of the Holocaust, from all over Europe and speaking many languages. Thankfully they have been recording their experiences and histories. This is a true story and worth reading. I am glad I did.

Disappointing

A just okay book about the difficulties of surviving the horrors of WW 2. I definitely would not recommend this book. There are many others more compelling than this one.
