Destined to Live: A True Story of a Child in the HolocaustHot
I love this book! I also love to read about other Holocaust stories and about our past. I would recommend this book to others because it teaches you a life lesson, that Jewish people had is bad in the 1930s. Luncia's life was every girls dream; she had nice clothes, nice dolls, great parents. She had everything a young girl could ever ask for. Then, the Nazi's ruin everything. Nazi's and German's sweep up the street, killing every Jew they can lay their hands on. But lucky for Lunzia and her parents, people join in and help them hide, even if it risks taking their lives. Read on about Lunzia's past in Destined to Live.
This book flew right by. The story of Ruth "Luncia" Gruener and how she survived the Holocaust is so riveting, I found myself unable to put it down until I'd read it from cover-to-cover.
Luncia led a charmed life as the beloved daughter of a candy maker in Poland. At least, her life was charmed until she was five-years-old, when the Germans invaded Poland. Shortly after that, Jewish Luncia and the rest of her family were forced into hiding.
Tales like this one can sometimes be heavy-handed. This one is told in such a way that it is palatable for even younger readers, though it doesn't shy away from the obvious fear-inducing truths of the Holocaust.
For those who never want to forget, this is the perfect book to help them remember.
