Description

Life story of a Hungarian Jew born before WWI, who's life gets destroyed by the Holocaust. The rebuilt family business gets destroyed by the Communists in 1948, causing him to restart life the second time. Life then gets disrupted by the Hungarian uprising, causing a move to Israel to start over again for the third time, establishing a modest life, disrupted by the early death of his beloved wife. He lived to age 96 with all his faculties intact and a memory as brilliant as ever. A REVIEW: - Wonderfully written, unique and lucid style, with an enthusiastic, child-like personality. - It's an old-fashioned love story. - His first employment sounds amusingly Dickensian. - A picture of life in those dramatic periods, from an everyman's point of view. - An added perspective as to why European Jews fell victim to the Holocaust. - It shows what one needs to survive and flourish in such trying times: intelligence, resourcefulness, a supportive family, a lot of luck, and a passion for life.
