I am reviewing a copy of Long Journey Home Through Usher Publishing and Netgalley:
The Summer Of 1939 was the last summer of Luisia’s childhood, the Holocaust would take much of her extended family, thought and Aunt and a cousin would make it through, having escaped to Switzerland. Luisia had lived her life in Sucha Poland.
On September 1st when Luisia was only six, her parents roused her and her older sisters from bed.
She talks about the difficulty of the winter of 1939/1940 under Soviet Occupation. She talks about the difficulty of having no friends
From a sheltered life in the Tatra mountains to her time as a barefoot and hungry little girl in Siberia and Tajikstan as central area to her families final arrival in the United States. She talks too about her time in an a home for Orphaned Holocaust Children, Until it was discovered her parents had miraculously survived.
Long Journey Home is a powerful memoir of survival.
I give Long Journey Home five out of five stars!
