An incredible story. Beautifully written. Such an important part of history to tell about. Perfect for young adults to introduce to this horrendous period in time.

Informative

I found this book last night, bought it, and began reading it immediately. I just could not put it down. I was disturbed that the world stood by as the Nazis attempted to exterminate an entire race of people. I wept for the loss. I finished high school and began college in the late '60s. It amazes me that this information was not included in our instruction at either instructional level.

Sarinka is an evocative family memoir detailing the rarely heard Sephardic Jewish experience during the Shoah. What began as a daughter’s hunger to faithfully recount as a family heirloom her parents’ unique story of great love and great loss at the hands of the Nazis is now a gift to us all. With fastidious attention to detail and to history, Linda Cohen immerses us in the twists, turns, terrors and daily miracles of her hastily wed parents’ harrowing flight from their homes, their families, an ...more

Couldn’t put it down. Such an important historical accounting of a time and place during the Holocaust that has been overlooked for too long. Highly recommend reading this book. Well written, compelling story.

Excellent

This memoir was a hard one to put down! It was very well written and had a lot of detail regarding the authors journey across Europe.

I would give Sarinka a six star rating if possible. I’ve been reading more during the pandemic than usual and a stand-out amongst all is “Sarinka” by F. Linda Cohen. This is a memoir of her parents’ escape from Nazi rule during WWII. I was moved by their faith and the power of prayer as they bravely faced unimaginable loss and suffering. So inspiring to learn about Ruth Gruber, and how the power of one can surely make a difference. Linda’s mother’s words will stay with me “My hope is people will ...more

I recently visited the Safe Haven at Fort Ontario in Oswego, NY. I picked up a few books and this was one. I have read Ruth Gruber's books about the people and their trip across the Atlantic to safety from Hilter and WWII. This is a book about a young girl, her life of a child in a Jewish home in Yugoslavia to living in a refugee camp in Oswego, NY. She speaks of the deaths of her family and friends. The secret trips to the train stations and the times the Nazi soldiers interview her and her hus ...more
