Description

In Fiet's Vase and Other Stories of Survival, Europe 1939-1945, Alison Leslie Gold links together harrowing yet ultimately inspiring personal accounts of World War II. Meditating on such themes as kindness, love, and art, these stories shed light on the various strengths that people drew on in a dark period of human history.From a young Jewish woman who defied death to keep the promise she had made to her dead mother to protect her baby sister, to a Berlin boy, the son of a nazi, who separated from his father to discover a lifelong passion for the theater, the experiences of the individuals recounted here offer a rare glimpse at the personal face of war. How was it possible to survive the terror of these years: what hidden reserves did people summon in order to carry on? The voices contained in this book offer poignant answers to these still deeply relevant questions.A testament to the enduring strength of the human spirit, Fiet's Vase and Other Stories of Survival uncovers the glowing sparks of hope and human kindness that sustained people through this tragic era.show more
