    Childhood by Jona Oberski( Book )
    22 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 953 libraries worldwide
    A rediscovered masterpiece: an unblinking view of the Holocaust through a child's eyes. Told from the perspective of a child slowly awakening to the atrocities surrounding him, Childhood is a searing story of the Holocaust that no reader will soon forget. As five-year-old Jona waits with his mother and father to emigrate from Nazi-occupied Amsterdam to Palestine, they are awakened at night, put on a train, and eventually interned in the camps at Bergen-Belsen. There, what at first seems to be a merely dreary existence soon reveals itself to be one of the worst horrors humanity has ever created. A triumph of heartrending clarity and dispassionate amazement, Childhood stands tall alongside such monuments of Holocaust literature as The Diary of Anne Frank, Elie Wiesel's Night, and Primo Levi's Survival in Auschwitz

    At the height of the Holocaust it was Nazi policy to preserve small groups of privileged Jews for possible use in exchanges with allied-held German civilians. Held in the special Sternlager at Bergen-Belsen their privilege amounted to being kept alive rather than gassed, although 70 per cent of the internees perished before the camp's liberation, victims of disease, starvation, beatings or sheer despair. One such privileged internee, Abel Herzberg, a Dutch lawyer and writer, managed in the hell of Bergen-Belsen to keep a diary which chronicles the reality of daily existence in the camp, with its grotesquely dehumanizing conditions and the magnanimity and pettiness which they engendered. He describes the relations between inmates and the civic code of the internees

Unlike other books dealing with this period, this is not a Holocaust story, but a child's recollection of a journey full of surprise, excitement, bereavement and terror. Yet, this remains a testimony of survival, overcoming obstacles, which to adults may seem insurmountable, but to a child were just part of an adventure and, ultimately, recovery.
